Saul Steinberg Wallpaper Here I come!

Am off to New York tomorrow and will be staying at the Soho Grand for the first time.
The location is great and I've heard the bar is too die for but what really clinched it for me is the fact that every bathroom contains this wonderful Aviary wallpaper by Saul Steinberg!
This paper was created by Steinberg in the 1950s and reissued years later by Schumacher.

What a fantasticly (sp!) quirky choice by Interior Designer Bill Sofield and perfect space for an illustrator to stay methinks. Can't wait to take a shower!

ps. If you wanna see what hijinks I'm planning... you can check my Pinterest NYC board.
Am going to hear Todd Oldham speak on Saturday as part of the Designers and Books Fair.  (!)

Call me a "mother hen" but I sure hope you are safe in sound back home, or somewhere safe in NYC!

I never thought single color wallpaper could look so nice. Nice picture Alanna.

Hi Mary
Yes Todd Oldman was wonderful.
He is so smart and very modest.
