The bedroom, and the majority of the house, was papered with what I was told was Brunschwig and Fils grasscloth. Some rooms left it intact, as was the upstairs landing. It was repaired and painted, and came off looking very rich. A pale grey paint was chosen which gave a new look to the previous red grasscloth, which had faded from many years of morning sunlight.
Our gold masterbedroom's wallpaper had darken behind some furniture and in need of repair as well. Luckily, the foundation was willing to have it stripped off and only a small amount of the wall underneath needed some patching----whew!
Notice the mauve carpet in the photo above---it was also removed by the people working for the Foundation and the wooden floor was refinished with a beautiful walnut color stain. It made a striking contrast with our light, airy color scheme:
It was a bit of a sad day when the furniture and decor was removed and brought back to the shop. We left the drapery in hopes that the new owner will love them as much as we did.....and possibly would want some of the items brought back :)
