I found this image -left-on pinterest, but I’ve lost the link . I’m sure it was posted by a James in Scotland; I racked my brain for ages trying to think what it reminded me of. Then I got it. Walter Crane’s wall panel & paper designs.
Generally know for his children’s book illustrations and Arts & Crafts association, he was also a prolific designer of ceramics, prints, textiles ,stained glass and plaster “bas-relief” panels.
I found this vintage print –right – at the Antiqua Print Gallery http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Antiqua-Print-Gallery?_trksid=p2047675.l2563
Depending on your skills you could use something similar as inspiration for a whole wall, or room? Blow up the design and trace it? Make a stencil of one portion and repeat?
My own intentions to use wall paper, panels & murals at the French house have waxed and waned, but they WILL feature in the bedrooms. Very French. Though I won’t be wallpapering the ceilings…..but you can….
All those below from this great source I found on ebay. Some beautiful stuff and not crazily priced. http://stores.ebay.co.uk/decorsupplies?_trksid=p2047675.l2563
And yes, I am of the opinion that you can mount framed art on papered walls
