One of the great things about fairy tales—and I mean the original, unexpurgated versions by Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, et. al.—is that for every “happily ever after,” there’s an equally compelling “unhappily ever after.” Manufacturer Graham & Brown embraces this refreshing duality with their wondrous Spellbound line, “a fantastical collection of magical themes in wallpaper.”
Graham & Brown’s Spellbound Wallpaper Explore the Range of Human Emotion
As both Andersen and the Brothers Grimm would contend, fairy tales express the great continuum of human experience—from enchantment to despair, placidity to rage, love to the deepest hatred. In its impressive range of styles and consequent evocation of emotion and mood, Spellbound aims for such broad expression.
The collection includes some 11 different themes—with enough color and stylistic variation within each to constitute a veritable cornucopia of story book folklore. My favorites include the Arachnid-obsessed “Bewitched,” the celestial “Starstruck,” and the darkly Gothic “Fairytoile.” Those of sunnier disposition might prefer the classic “Bewitched,” or one of the many floral incarnations of “Cottage Garden.”
