First priority: wallpaper

And so it begins. Now that the signing off on the apartment is confirmed for 10th April, we can finally get down to the nitty gritty. The plans have been more or less decided with our lovely architect (more about that soon), and we have to start worrying about exactly how we are going to decorate the place.

First idea: really posh wallpaper. Anne Gelbard founded her own studio just over ten years ago, and her small team of ten use her secret technique of oxidised metal on fabrics and wallpaper, all made by hand. We think they would make a striking addition to the new apartment, although we haven't properly looked at the prices yet (gulp).

If you have some basic French, here's a link to a news report (on nasty right-wing channel TF1, sorry) that show her and her helpers hard at work.
