Best Papering

Top-of-the-Line
Brian Kehoe
212-629-3040

Kehoe trained at the United States School for Professional Paperhanging in Vermont. He's been plying his trade for fifteen years and can tackle anything -- suede cloth, grass cloth, and textiles as well as basic papers, although he hangs mostly high-end product. He will do jobs small as a bathroom. Minimum: $500; more if ceiling is included.

Cost-Conscious
Picasso
1259 Park Avenue, at 97th Street
212-722-8883


Although Anastasios Detsikas's paperhangers are skilled enough to handle 70-year-old, tissuelike papers and pricey hand-painted murals, he prefers hanging "regular stuff for regular folks." He says he's done more than 1,000 "standard New York City bathrooms"; most such jobs run about $300 (or $500 with ceiling).
