There’s wallpaper wizardry here in the way an Early American border print, used four different ways, helped turn a spare closet into a strikingly attractive powder room.

This midcentury home renovation, seen here as it was back in 1966, proved that wallpaper could be used in truly creative ways that went far beyond the usual.

The whole border print trimmed the chopping-block counter. Strips of the print, cut to utilize the different design motifs, decorated the walls and folding window screen, which was made of lengths of 34-inch plywood.

The walls were pine boards painted a toasty golden brown, which coordinated nicely with the wicker baskets and wood accents.

A cool Delft blue was used for the flooring — vinyl tile, which had been hexagonally cut and beveled — as well as for the blue stamped tin mirror frame, chair cushion, and faux candles in the rustic metal hanging light fixture.
