I purchased this in the gold color which is absolutely stunning. I bought 2 rolls from anthro and a 3rd roll (unopened) from someone who had purchased it for an unrealized project. I calculated based on sq footage. 3 rolls was perfect with a little to spare. My paper hanger arrived to quote me on installation, later called to tell me that based on the size of the repeat I would only be able to use roughly half of each roll, HALF, the rest would be waste and I would have to purchase 3-4 more rolls to do the whole half bath. Couldn't justify the cost. So decided to do the main wall only and return the unused roll. At the end of project we discovered that the color of the one I purchased outside of anthro was a different shade of gold than the other two. Had to rip out half of it and open the unused roll to make it match. Advice is, open your rolls and lay them next to each other a bit to make sure color matches. Paper hanger said he hasn't seen that problem in quite some time. Other advice is have an expert measure for you before you order so you know what you will need and be aware of what you are willing to spend. On the upside, paper is gorgeous and my paperhanger said it was excellent quality.

Do NOT hang this yourself!
At $150 a roll and a huge repeat on the pattern, it's expensive to screw this up. First, there is - as others have noted- a stupid border that must be cut. If you don't have a brimmer, any deviations from a straight line will create gaps. Second, this wallpaper is thin and rips easily - be careful of the wetness of your glue. It's too thin to use over orange peel walls (learned that the hard way) so a liner is recommended (and in all fairness the instructions do say that much). It bubbles and pinches and is just very, very hard to work with.
But the worst part was the patterns do not align perfectly. :( I am not happy overall with the end result, although I do love the wallpaper itself.
Also I thought most of the pictures look much more yellow than it really is. It's more of a matte rather mustard yellow.

This paper is striking when hung.
This is a beautiful paper, but not for the novice. It is challenging to hang. First, you must cut off a white border on each side of the roll. The paper then needs to be pasted with a pre-mixed glue. We diluted the glue some and pasted both the wall and the paper. That seemed to work the best after experimenting with different things. It is a good quality paper. Cutting must be done precisely with a proper straight edge and a sharp Exacto knife. Be prepared to spend a fair amount of time hanging it - but it does look impressive when done.
this wallpaper is just so beautiful, and looks even better in real life. the colors are bold and bright and really add to the room! this was my first time putting up pre-pasted wallpaper and it wasn't exactly super easy as a previous reviewer mentioned...I kept thinking, "how did that 16 year old put this up all by herself?!" :) if your walls are super high like ours, I would suggest really making sure the paper is soaked before you put it up. the paper quality is super strong, so you won't rip it with all the water. for the spots that just weren't sticking, we added a little wall paper paste, which really worked like a charm. if you are even on the fence about ordering this, just do it! you'll love the finished results!

This wallpaper is stunning once hung. The paper is good quality, it stretched as needed, and finished beautifully. That said, I would not recommend the 30 second dip as recommended in the directions. It made the paper too wet, and the glue would ooze out. It worked much better to wet the back with a wet sponge rather than dipping it all in water. Eased application considerably.
While it was fairly straightforward to hang, it's still wallpaper. The SureStrip does cut out some of the hassle, but it's still the same issues of pattern matching, dripping glue and smoothing out creases and bubbles. I can't imagine hanging it alone - I was happy to have two friends to help!

Love this wallpaper!
This wallpaper is gorgeous! We used it in an accent wall in our economy renovated master bathroom. It's just the pop of color and beauty to make the space special.
This wallpaper is truly something you need to see in person. Although the pictures online are good, the depth of the colors is so incredible in person. I put it in my very tiny 1950s bathroom, which has gold speckled tiles and black tile trim. I smile every time I walk in the room. It brightens everything up, it isn't too busy or distracting. It is very soothing and happy at the same time. I agree with other reviewers that the sample can't do it justice. I nearly passed on it after ordering the sample, because all I got was a tiny section with the pale sea green leaves. The earthy darker greens, golds and pinks are what bring it to life. What sold me was seeing it in person at an Anthropologie store on a little wall.
I had it installed by a professional, and I bought extra and I'm glad I did. I definitely recommend it.

I am glad that I found this product on Pinterest
I am starting a new mobile fashion boutique here in Dallas, TX called My Rolling Closet. The interior theme is Shabby Chic with a little modern touch. I was looking all over and Google like crazy to look for the right kind of wallpaper that I want to use as a focal point for my store. However, it is important to me that it can't have a "Granny" look. I somehow found this product while I was browsing on Pinterest and I fall in love with the design immediately. The quality is great and look just like the picture I saw on Pinterest. Now this pattern is the feature and a focal point in my store. This design just match my theme perfectly. Although my truck is still under renovation and will be launch this Oct 2013. And I hope to post up another picture once it is ready.

Beautiful and fun
I just had this wallpaper installed in my pantry which is open to a bar/living space. It gives just the right pop of color and fun in an unexpected place, it also makes the pantry feel 10x bigger. Love it!! Not just for nurseries! Excellent quality!
This wallpaper makes my 1950s bathroom look fresh, beautiful and sophisticated. This is the first wallpaper I've ever put up, and I got the hang of it pretty fast. It's pre-pasted, which is great for easy installation. I found that I needed two tools: a wallpaper blade that allows you to snap off 1/2" pieces of the blade after each individual cut so that you have a fresh blade for each cut, otherwise the blade will drag and make a ragged edge and rips. I also needed a plastic wallpaper smoother. One last tip: Rather than submerge the entire roll in water, submerge each individual section as you go. I love this wallpaper and can't wait to use it again!

A pattern to die for
I put this pattern up in my bathroom and was a little skeptical about it at first. I began finding myself drawn more and more to it until I was spending 10-12 hours a day on the toilet just staring at the wallpaper. Watching the bus pick up the people from the Eiffel tower and drive them to the Farris Wheel was such a delight. They had so much fun. It was sad when Mr. Stevens pushed his wife out of the Eiffel Tower. I don't know if I can look at this wallpaper anymore. It makes me cry sometimes.

This wallpaper is so whimsical and charming. I used it in my downstairs half bath, and months later, I remain enchanted by it every time I'm in there. The subtle colors and the scale of the pattern works great in a small space like a powder bath. It is busy, but not too overwhelming. I am 100% happy with the purchase, and I think the price is pretty reasonable.
I just had this paper installed after years of wanting this paper. It is by Cole and Sons, a high-end wallpaper house out of the U.K.
I do have some important tips: Since these rolls are from the U.K., they are twice as long as our standard rolls. We call them "double-rolls" in the States. I wouldn't go with the wallpaper calculator because it does not account for the repeat in the pattern. Number one tip- have a professional wallpaper installer do the measurements and tell you how many rolls you'll need and have them install the paper. Don't forget to tell them that these are double-rolls! This is such a lovely, yet pricey, paper, and I would never have installed it myself. My installer worked around my millwork and even my window sills. It looks stunning, like a little forest in my living room.
As for the print itself, it's very striking and will go with any color scheme and most furniture styles.

I love Woods
Woods turned out perfect! It is so visually striking and looks perfect in my bathroom. It's quite different, but if you are thinking about it--go for it with confidence! I had it professionally installed since i'd never hung wallpaper before and it looks great!

Love! Love! Love!
Great design! Really love it in my house.This was my first time applying wallpaper. This brand is from the UK and is not pre pasted. You will need to purchase the paste from any hardware store. Please read requirements of the paste when it arrives. My only issue is because I have a dark color behind the paper my suggestion is to have the colour on the walls similar to the paper as you might be able to see it on the seam line. Overall I am thrilled with my purchase and highly recommend.
I love all the work Nathalie Lete does. I very nearly purchased the Enchanted Forest Mural for my son's room. Wouldn't it be the perfect backdrop for a kids' room, or hallway or wall in a family's living quarters? What a story-starter! I also think it would be great in an author's office/library - as a writer I love surrounding myself with inspirational pieces of art. The Enchanted Forest and this beautiful and vibrant Great Meadow Mural are such wonderful pieces. This would be amazing in my current office. Unfortunately I live in San Francisco where in many traditional homes have 8' ceilings. I don't feel right ordering these for $300 or $500 and then chopping off the bottom 2 feet so they fit the room. Sure, I could repurpose the trimmings, but what a waste. I wish these came a bit shorter for those us of with average ceilings.

It feels as if it has always belonged in my home.
This paper is exactly what my dining room has always needed. I admit that I don't mind making a statement but this was a big step for even me. Now I wish that I hadn't waited so long. My mom's style is danish modern and she loves it. And my classic mother in law loves it too.

this is actually a question for anthro, or anyone that has purchased this product already. What are the widths of each individual panel? I plan on using this inside bookcases and want to know how many panels per bookcase I will need.
Gorgeous piece of wall art. Well done nathalie! another amazing contribution to the design world.
Very high quality and easy to install. Looks realistic

I love it!
I got the sample first to gauge this paper's weight, and immediately knew it was more a large poster than a true wallpaper. It arrived just now and my boyfriend and I have put it up with thumbtacks on the bathroom wall in like 2 minutes! And it is fab! Plus this way I can take it with me when I move!
As I write this he is still in there reading the titles of the "books!" :) (and I actually have some of the books in the piece which is kinda cool). When this goes on sale I am buying more!
