Few set designers begin production with the intention of creating a deliberately gaudy and tacky stage. However, Thomas Buderwitz, scenic designer for South Coast Repertory's "The Prince of Atlantis," sought to do just that — to "push the boundaries of good taste. " The just-opened play by Steven Drukman follows Joey Colletti (John Kapelos), one of Boston's biggest seafood importers, as he lands himself in a minimum-security prison after getting into trouble with his company.

Architect Frank Lloyd Wright's personal life was so full of scandal, chaos and high drama that it's remarkable how peaceful his creations could be. The design team from Schumacher, the wallpaper and textile company, sought to capture the sense of serenity and love of nature evident at Wright's last home and architectural laboratory, Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Ariz., in the company's 1999 Frank Lloyd Wright Collection.

Question: I would like to wallpaper a portion of our den and I've already bought the paper. I bought it for the pattern, but when I got home I found that it's the kind that you need to paste first. Never having done this before, I was wondering if it's easier to apply the paste to the paper or to the wall. It seems as though putting it on the wall would be better. T.J., Placentia Answer: "You should always apply the paste to the paper," says Bob Kalem of Pacific Decorating Center in Anaheim.

A remarkable solo performance by Jill Remez vividly evokes the historical tragedy of creative women stifled by social convention in "The Yellow Wallpaper" at the Rose Theatre. Adapted by Remez and director Kerry Noonan from feminist author Charlotte Perkins Gilman's semi-autobiographical 1890 short story, this increasingly intense monologue presents snapshots at various stages of a nameless woman's mental odyssey of self-definition.

Wild animals and their habitats are favorite subjects for oil paintings and fine prints. Now, in a rising use of outdoorsy decorations for interiors, some artists have added another medium to their repertoire--wallpaper. "Wallpaper gives people in the urban world an opportunity to see wild animals the only way they can," wildlife artist Glen Loates of Maple, Ontario, said. "Wallpaper is also a way for me to get the word out to remind people that we have a very enjoyable planet."

Selecting the right wallpaper is easier than actually hanging it. But the job shouldn't cause undue anxiety if you understand the basic techniques. Wall preparation and layout are critical to a good-looking job and are just as important as the installation or hanging process. The first step in hanging wallpaper should be sizing the walls. This makes it easier to slide the paper around without tearing while you align the pattern.

THE 12-foot triptych gracing the front window of furniture gallery Emmerson Troop might look like loopy pen-and-ink doodles, but "Untitled" by 2001 San Francisco Art Institute grad Ryan Kewie Donegan is actually an innovative wall covering. Unlike traditional wallpaper -- 3 feet wide, with a pattern that repeats every 2 to 3 feet -- Donegan's design comes in 4- by 12-foot rolls and a choice of three distinctive but coordinated laser-printed patterns based on the artist's drawings.
