Q: I am hunting high and low for help on this. I live in NYC and have a 5-month-old baby. I am semi-converting the guest bedroom to be the baby's room. Semi-converting meaning, when visitors turn up, I don't want them to feel like they're sleeping a nursery! There is a dark wood closet in the room, and I want to line the inside to brighten it up. Do you have any suggestions/inspiration for where I could get some graphic, warm paper. I am thinking I could even use gift wrapping paper (use double sided tape), so I could take it off when I get bored.

Editor: I think wrapping paper could work and you might also consider contact or adhesive shelf paper as well. Apartment Therapy profiled a company called Chic Shelf Paper you might want to check out. Snow and Graham which sells online as well as in stores is known for its modern designs. In New York City, Kate's Paperie has a huge selection of wrapping paper although much of it (usually my favorites) is sold by the sheet and can get pricey if you need a lot. I buy much of my wrapping paper in New York at Paper Presentation on 18th St. While you're there visit the Container Store nearby on 6th Avenue as they often have a surprisingly good selection of wide wrapping paper by the roll (hopefully not all holiday paper now!). Readers - where would you look either in NYC or online? Or do you have another idea for Reema?
