Hi, We're James & Dom

Two guys from Chicago, doing neat things, cooking good food, building stuff, big and small.

Read All Roosevelt's Hunting Excursions

Everyone's favorite wallpaper on Pinterest is the book page wall covering. And why not, it's warm, charming, and visually interesting. James’ mother had a several volumes of Teddy Roosevelt’s autobiography that a designer purchased to live in an unused book nook at an older home. James took the mostly deteriorating books and knew he wanted a room to feature the pages. Initially considered for the guest room at the Pilsen Flat, it was held over until we could come up with a use at Fairfield Garden. When designing the Roosevelt Suite(not yet named), we agreed it made a good theme, a lodgy, well-read, cozy suite, and chose an accent wall behind the bed. Dom applied the pages using wallpaper adhesive leftover from the kitchen wallpaper, taking just two days.
