When Curtis found a tiny sample of Montgomery Ward wallpaper, he knew he needed it for his kitchen. Unfortunately, the book was printed in the 1940s, so procuring several rolls proved a little difficult. "No problem," thought Curtis, "I'll just paint it on."
"When he wanted patterns for his bathroom and kitchen, he picked them out of an old Montgomery Ward sample wallpaper book. And he didn't just pick them, he used different inputs to create the perfect amalgam of the perfect pattern of 40's era wallpaper. He made sure to match the colors perfectly, and then he went well out of his way to replicate the patterns on his wall."
