Unless you are very experienced, get a professional to put these up. I consider myself an experienced wallpaperer. I bought a mural, which came in VERY wide widths. It was very difficult to handle because of this, and it was a two person job. If I ever got another one, I would not even attempt it myself. The thing with wallpaper is, if you make a bad mistake, you can cut yourself another length - there is no room for error on a mural - there is no 'spare'.
I saw this in an interiors mag recently, and it looked AMAZING - I am lusting after it for the recess we have in our hallway. You'll have to trust me though, it doesn't look anywhere near as good on the cole and son website.
Zoffany definitely definitely do something similar because I have a sample of it in my attic for ages and it’s gorgeous! I love looking at it but would never be allowed it here. I will try to track it down for you, I think it’s actually nicer!
Yes I got a decorator to do it - I've never hung wallpaper so can't really judge how tricky it was. It comes in normal width strips, and seem to have good instructions for lining up the pattern. But obviously there's no repeating pattern so if you make an mistake you're screwed.
feezies - My BIL has just put a very similar paper in his guest room. The trouble is, while it looks amazing in photographs, it's a bit nausea-inducing in real life. Something about the way the triangles overlap makes me feel distinctly seasick when I slee in there. Do get a large sample to try before you buy!
Good point, whiskyowl - I'd definitely check it out beforehand. My hope would be that since it would be in an alcove by the front door, with quite a lot of it behind a mirror and a credenza, it wouldn't be OTT.
Ah, who am I kidding, it's not like DH will actually let me do it anyway
