Can anyone recommend a wall paper hanger? I'd like to put up grasscloth on an accent wall. I live in the Lamorinda area.

I can highly recommend Heidi Wright in Montclair. wallpapergirl [at] yahoo.com She installed a wallpaper frieze in my living room about 2 months ago and it looks perfect. She did it all in one day - she is very organized. I have hung wallpaper myself in the past, but in this case I planned to use some pricey Bradbury & Bradbury paper in my 1912 Craftsman home, and since the house has settled over the years the walls and ceiling are all a little out of kilter, I wanted a professional to come do it. Heidi came out and took measurements and told me how much wallpaper to order, and then made an appointment to come back to hang the paper. She primed the wall first, cut all the papers, and hung it. It looks amazing! I found her by going to the professional organization http://www.ngpp.org/ and she was the only one in the area who could schedule me within 6 months. She is very good - you won't be disappointed! Ginger

Hey there fellow BPNers, I'm loving all the cool new wallpapers out there, and would like to paper an accent wall in my home. Actually hanging the paper, however, is not something I feel confident about trying. Can anyone recommend a skilled wallpaper hanger? (I checked the archives, but there's only one recommendation from several years ago.) Is this something that a painting contractor would/could do? (That would be ideal, since I have some painting needs as well.) Or should I look for a paper-only person? Any recommendations would be most appreciated. Thanks so much! Leah

For wallpapering and excelllent painting, I recommend Susanne George (510) 289-0713. She has painted every room in my house, stripped some very tenacious old paper and re-papered with skill. She is in the East Bay. Caroline
Two or three years ago I used PAPER DOLLS WALLPAPERING 510-235- 4759. They did a great job and it still looks great. My wallpaper was not trimmed so they also had to trim it - they probably would not do that again, but they did at that time. I would highly recommend them. jh

Does anyone know where I can find cut-out wall decorations with a fairy tale theme (princess, fairy, castle, unicorn, flowers, trees, etc.) for my daughter's bedroom? The kind that I can just peel off and stick on the wall. Physical stores or website addresses would be very helpful. Thank you very much. Anonymous

You might try Wallies...they are wallpaper shapes that apply with just a bit of water. This theme from their website might be what you are looking for: http://www.wallies.com/cgi-bin/web/shop.cgi?s.item.W13423=x=90004=4==34819149 Claire
Hi, I found ''wallpaper'' designs that have all sorts of choices (fairies and castles included) at Michael's (it's a chain so there are lots of stores, but closest one to Berkeley is in Emeryville). The brand name for these decorations is ''Wallies''-- I think you can also get them off the internet. The application on the wall is easy-- just wet and stick and they have proved quite durable. Good luck. luisa

I received a few recommendations for wallpaper hangers from the wallpaper dept. at Pursel Quality Paints on University (845-7525). We used a man named Denny Sheehan who did a great job - he primed and hung the paper in 1 day plus 1 morning. He charges by the roll, but I can't recall how much - our total was around $380 for one room. I can't find his number but I'm sure you can get it from Pursel. --Ellen
