JCampbell Wallpaper Sheets (formerly PastedPaper) featured on Decorating Tips & Tricks podcast
Kelly Wilkniss and Anita Joyce featured JCampbell on their podcast Decorating Tips and Tricks Your Walls Reimagined. Kelly used the Acanthus Black to wallpaper her bathroom. She calls it the “easiest paper of all.” On the podcast, JCampbell CEO and founder Julie Campbell talks about the ease of using their Wallpaper Sheets, easily removable pre-pasted sheets. “All you do is dip them in water,” explains Campbell, “and they’re designed to line up perfectly.”

“The pattern on the front is perfect!” says Wilkniss. “I love the product. “It was easier than I imagined. I rolled it through water and I just walked over to the wall, lined up the first one, and then I was off to the races.” She said she couldn’t wait until the next morning where she could walk into her bathroom and marvel at the wall of gorgeous paper that she had done all herself.
“I LOVE my bathroom. It looks fabulous.”
Design Origin: The Acanthus Plant
Acanthus. A genus of several dozen flowering plants. In the family Acanthaceae, they’re found in tropical and warm climates like the Mediterranean, where you’ll find the most variety. Its nectar is a favorite amongst butterflies. Acanthus design. It’s said to be the oldest flower in the Mediterranean region.
Acanthus Throughout Design History
The Acanthus design is unmistakable. It almost feels like something that has just always existed. The earliest appearances are in ancient Greek and Roman architecture. Friezes, dentils, Corinthian columns, the oldest recorded appearance is the Temple of Apollo Epicurius in Arcadia, Greece.
Through Byzantine, Romanesque and Gothic architecture, the design evolves, but remains elegant and timeless. From England to India, the design appears universal. In Mediterranean areas, the Acanthus represents immortality. To others, enduring life.
