“Home is the wallpaper above the bed …

“Home is the wallpaper above the bed, the family dinner table, the church bells in the morning, the bruised shins of the playground, the small fears that come with dusk, the streets and squares and monuments and shops that constitute one’s first universe.” Henry Anatole Grunwald (1922-2005, Editor in Chief of Time, Inc. 1979-1987).

None of these wallpapers were above the bed, but they were certainly home for somebody.  Wallpapers 1-3 (left to right) were in Apartment 2, and Wallpapers 4-7 were in Apartment 5 (the basement apartment).  Wallpaper 4 (roosters and flowers) was in the kitchen, and Wallpaper 5, behind the medicine cabinet.
