Wallpaper of the Rich and Famous
Not only can you smell and dress like the oil-rich hero and heroine of ABC-TV's "Dynasty," but now your house can have the Carrington look, on a less-than-dynastic budget. Barbara Lazarow, design director of Carefree Wallcoverings, worked with the creators of "Dynasty" to fashion wall coverings and fabric patterns that represent Blake's self-confidence, Krystle's traditionalism, Claudia's sensitivity and Alexis' knock-'em-dead drama. For information, contact Carefree Wallcoverings, 23645 Mercantile Road, Cleveland, Ohio 44122 or local wall-covering dealers.
