Two big mounds of homemade sausage smothered in a divinely garlicky rosemary-parsley sauce, on top of an entire plateful of ultra-tender lentils: I thought things couldn't get any better last night at , the Manhattan restaurant that and owners Marc Meyer and Vicki Freeman renovated and reopened last month. Then I went downstairs to the bathroom and suddenly felt like I was inside a book: All the walls in the tiny ladies room are covered with pages from Victor Hugo's classic, (the walls of the men's bathroom is lined with Alexandre Dumas's ). Today, I called Freeman to ask how the walls were done and whether the process could be replicated at home. Fortunately, the answer—if you have a lot of patience—is yes. Designers Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer bought hardcover books (look for ones with creamy paper to give the room a nice glow), used a straight-edge razor to cut pages out, and then spent days applying them to the walls with wallpaper glue, which they then covered with a matte sealer. "Our horror is that someone will graffiti all over it," says Freeman. "But we have spare pages, just in case."
