Rated 4 out of 5Â by Sproutflowers Gorgeous but Challenging
Recommended but with caveats.
First, this paper needs a special paste which FYI you can't get in the US. So we spent time talking to pros and decorators and special ordered a substitute and kept our fingers crossed.
Also as someone else said, watch the batch numbers on the rolls. I ordered 3 rolls, two of which came shipped together and matched and one that came separately which did not. As you can see in my picture it's pretty obvious that the rolls don't match. There were many delays in the project & I should have returned the paper, but went ahead anyhow. It's lovely, but was a major project.
My customers love the look in my shop, but not sure I would order paper from here again.

I applied this wallpaper to a limited wallspace above a free-standing fireplace mantel. I am extremely pleased with the quality of the paper and the overall outcome of the project. However, be advised that this is not your average sponge-the-back-slap-it-on wallpaper. The paper comes with very detailed instructions for proper application. You will need to purchase a specific kind of paste, which will stain the paper if any gets on the front. It was a tricky application, but totally worth it. I recommend this paper if you have the time and skill to apply it properly.

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.
