Ok, maths is not my strong point. I love Farrow and Ball Lotus paper but at £105 a roll I thought it was too much. But I'm only doing one wall under the picture rail so it may not be too bad, So how many rolls do I need?

It says Full roll width is 53cm/21", roll length is 10m, large pattern repeat is 51.8cm or 20 3/8". And my wall is 4.1 length and upto the picture rail so about 2.5 meters.

How many rolls will I need?

Well you'd been 5 repeats so that's 2.59m a drop and 8 drops so that's just over 20m ! 20.72 !! So sadly that's just into a third roll !!

Thanks for working that out. Ooooooo 3 rolls. I was hoping maybe 2 max. That a lot of money on wall paper but it's so nice. Ive just ordered a few samples in different colours. I'll see how I feel when I see them. Thank you.

Yep, 3 rolls here to, I reckon, tho I think you'll be near the end of roll 3 at the end of the job.
