Let It Roll! Vintage Wallpaper

Tucked inside the old arsenal building in Benicia, up flights of stairs and across a polished wood floor reminiscent of school houses dating back to the 19th century, is a door with a small sign, “Bradbury and Bradbury“. Cut out wallpaper pillars flanking the sides in ornate wallpaper design are the only indication that creative magic is happening on the other side of this opening.
