Wow, will you look at that wallpaper! I could see using that for a ceiling. I wonder if it's available commercially?

Mark I'll let you know what I find out! I suspect it was a recreation of what they had found in place.

Stefan I wish I could make it! Mark's idea is great!

Ditto on the wallpaper... love the color and the graphic. It's got to be a copy of an old paper... a great one. Sounds like a fun tour.

Hi guys, I heard back from one of the architects and he said that the wallpaper was made by this company.
