Artist's Dining Room in Valencia with Fringed Paper Walls
Seeking a slightly quieter existence, paper artist Pierre Pozzi relocated from Paris to Valencia in 2010. Soon after, he embarked on a three-year renovation of a 1,970-square-foot apartment, which now features a mix of modern furniture, original architectural details (like ceramic tile floors and crown moldings), and his own artwork.

The highlight is the whimsical, three-dimensional wallpaper in the dining room. Pozzi spent three weeks cutting eight-inch-tall, two-millimeter-wide lightweight paper stock into fringe by hand. Guests in Pozzi’s home are charmed, captivated, and intrigued by the effect, which he calls "frou-frou." "I try to enchant," Pozzi says of his work. "I’m happy that I achieved what I had imagined."
