The beautiful ivy on the wall did not come from a craft or decorating store. When left unchecked the outdoors will find a way inside. This is from the upstairs boys room of Moran Place. Also, that is not a border at the top of the picture. That molding went all the way around in every room of the home and was used to hang pictures and mirrors. A much better system instead of poking holes in walls. Unfortunately it calls for extremely high ceilings but that was no problem in this Victorian Gingerbread home.
