A common theme throughout Warhol’s career, shoes were at a new, disco high a la Studio 54 when he resurrected them in 1980. The added flourish of Diamond Dust (actually crushed glass) mimicked the glamour of the Manhattan glitterati he was out with. Flavor Paper took the original Polaroids Warhol used for his paintings and worked the arrangements into a repeating pattern. A modern version of Diamond Dust is available and adds a brilliant touch with a chrome background, which we think Andy would be quite proud of.

Installation Guides

Wallpaper installation is a serious craft and it takes many years of practice and experience to become a master hanger. Flavor Paper prints on some finicky materials with confusing matches and layouts, so we HIGHLY recommend using a professional installer.

You can find a qualified local wallpaper installer through the National Guild of Professional Paperhangers.
