Lincrusta - My Latest Obsession

 I found a jewel in downtown Leesburg for everything fabric and wallpaper. My wallpaper contact, Ami told me about it. The Drapery House. They have an amazing library of fabrics and papers. I started out looking at wallpaper but once the sales associate opened the sample book for Lincrusta...I was HOOKED!

Lincrusta is a paintable wallcovering that imitates leather, plasterwork and pressed metal. It hails from Britian and was launched in 1877. The first US production was in 1883. It can be used on ceilings, walls...think upscale wainscoting or as a border.

I must find a way to use it.
