In the movies, a wall covered in newspapers typically signals a serial killer or obsessive stalker. But, thanks to designer Lori Weitzner, newsprint-covered walls now say chic and eco-friendly. Weitzner’s new wallpaper called “Newsworthy” is made from recycled newsprint and runs at $125 per yard, says a New York Times blurb on her work. Meanwhile, Weitzner’s website warns: “This is newspaper, a recycled handmade product that is inconsistent. Please note graphics and color will vary throughout rolls and from roll to roll.” Custom orders are available, so if you want your Pictures of Goats section up on your wall, order now.
