Kenwood: wallpaper.

Two fragments of Kenwood, rescued by Joe Baiardi during his visit last year. These came from the room on the left in the second pic - namely the master bedroom circa 2006 - and what was probably a guest bedroom during the Lennon-era. As we have seen, Kenwood was undergoing extensive renovation at the time of Joe's visit, during which the remnants seen here were revealed behind the sheetrock. The question is, do they date from John's time? I'd say it is a distinct possibility - plants and flowers formed a definite motif in the decor of the house between 1964 and 1968. You can spot them on the dining room curtains, the sunroom armchairs, the master bedroom bed etc (see posts passim). For the hundredth time, many thanks indeed to Joe for sharing his Kenwood material with the rest of us.
