Best of Boston Home 2010 Restoration Wallpaper
J. R. Burrows & Co.
Anyone who cringes at boring beige interiors should take inspiration from the Victorian era, when every wall was festooned with the kinds of lively colors and patterns you'll find at J. R. Burrows. Founded by art historian John Burrows, this Rockport company has resurrected a sumptuous array of designs—from Candace Wheeler's "Japanese Carp" to "The Stag" by C.F.A. Voysey—identical to wallpapers that would have hung in Victorian parlors. (In fact, many patterns here were originally discovered during the renovations of local homes.)
