Framing Wallpaper Panels
Using a pair of framed wallpaper panels in a dining room can be an inspired and practical alternative to papering an entire room. It's an obvious solution if you rent, or expect to move often, and it allows you to use wallpaper that might be too expensive in large quantities. Moreover, this approach can be just as timeless and sophisticated as a completely papered room. Not second choice decorating.
The first image above is a detail view of heirloom Chinese wallpaper that decorator Suzanne Rheinstein salvaged and framed. Originally the paper was used in the childhood home of her husband. The second image is of a dining room designed by Steven Gambrel, using rescued hand-painted gauche panels. I think the scale of the panels is perfect in this room, and a good guideline if you opt to frame wallpaper fragments or hang any other similar found objects.
