Paper to the Max

For some reason when I was little, I thought a big white ceramic dog would be the most elegant home accessory. Now that these are in vogue again and I could buy one for myself, I'm kind of over them -- although I think Adler's use of this dog by the door is adorable. What I do currently covet is wallpaper.
In a small windowless apartment entry, I love to see every inch of wall surface papered including the backs of doors. This really creates that jewel box feeling and says "Ah, home at last."
