The house I've just bought has some of the maddest Cole and Son wallpapers. Some of it is lovely but a few are just weird. This one is giving my 2 year old daughter nightmares and this one is in her soon to be bedroom! Seems a shame to rip it out when it cost over £70 a metre but I can't live with it.
We'll be keeping the "flamingo" and "woods" bedrooms and the "bookcase wall" in the study but the rest will have to go!
I love the flamingos one, but I do see what you mean about the one with faces - I would find it spooky being continually stared at by disembodied heads, too! Hmm, you're right, that purple flower one is a bit choice too. Still, I do like the fact that they do papers other than those sodding massive flowers in black/ red that get everywhere!
It is in a big room in a Georgian house but you're right, a bit full on for a bedroom. It's actually ok from afar and would work as a feature wall but it is impossible to match up round door frames, windows, fireplaces, etc so it ends up giving you a headache, like one of those magic eye books.
I'm hoping that I can impose a neutral paint (wallpaper is wasted on a toddler anyway) before she grows into the Disney phase!
Have they done the whole room in that one paper?? bloody hell.
I know what you mean about imposing tasteful decor before the inevitable pink/ disney phase starts - DD is 3 and a bit and is soon to have a new room in our new house. She is insistent on wanting it purple, mini-goth that she is. I am however imposing some tasteful scandi wallpaper on DS as he is too young to object at 9 months.
oooh, thanks for those. I really love this for my downstairs loo and this for the kids bedroom which I'll let them colour in. Just got to find something for my bedroom.. oh and perhaps the spare room <goes a bit bonkers with wallpaper lust>
