Research and analysis into the interior treatments of Homewood’s Drawing Room have revealed that the room was originally wallpapered, rather than painted as previously identified. STEVE LARSON, co-founder of Adelphi Paper Hangings and an expert on the history of wallpaper, will discuss how new papers are produced using historic designs and techniques. His talk will focus on the complicated reproduction of an arabesque pattern used on the walls of Locust Grove, a Federal house near Louisville, Kentucky, and the planned reproduction of a similar French arabesque paper for Homewood’s Drawing Room, so that this space might be restored to its early 19th-century appearance.
