Yellow Wallpaper

"The Yellow Wallpaper," a short story by Charlotte Perkins Gillman published in 1891 is the tale of decor gone horribly wrong. (The wallpaper takes on ghostly forms and drives our poor heroine coo-coo.) While it does nothing to improve the reputation of wallpaper as an uplifting design element, it does beg the question: If our heroine had such beautiful papers as these, might her situation have been different?
