Twig Hutchinson is a photo stylist and her approach is fabulous. Shes created a raw shabby chic vintage style. Adding color of course where it needs to be.
Most people just wrap the walls to make a statement. The look today is to wallpaper one wall, making it the main focus of a room. I like how Twig has created a whimsical approach to the chair and table wrapped in newspapers. It reminds us a bit of Andy Warhol and how he would take a normal item and transform it( like a soup can) into art. Twig has definitely made an art statement.
Another fun idea is from Lori Wietzner, a designer who makes actual newspaper into wall coverings. The bits of color are fabulous which break up the monotony of the black and white. OKk, so its a little difficult to read but it does make a textural statement and it’s all about recycling, so how can you not love it!

But that really isn’t why we decorate….it’s all about getting the look we want, and this looks sophisticated with the right furnishings.
