Victorian Splendor

Originally designed by J. Merrill Brown in 1887, this Queen Anne style home sits proudly in Cambridge's Avon Hill Historic District. Past was blended with present in the restoration of this property to its original 19th century elegance. The design satisfied historical requirements with its attention to authentic detailsand materials; it also satisfied the wishes of the family who has been connected to the house through several generations.

Wallpaper - Hi I've chosen the same color of paint for my cabinets based on this kitchen. I've even tried it out in the laundry room. I would love to do an accent wall with wallpaper in my new kitchen. Could you tell me what print / manufacturer the wallpaper is? It appears to match the Adams Gold paint perfectly.

I'm not the poster of the picture so I can't answer where they are from, But you should be able to go to any local custom cabinetshop and ask if they do Framed cabinets with Inset doors. If they say yes, ask to see some examples just to make sure they really know what they are doing. Have fun!
