Spent yesterday getting on with the decorating at Project Squeeze with yours truly on wall / skirting duties and Mr M on anything above head height. It’s looking so lovely but sorry, I don’t want to post pics ’til it’s finished and looking it’s best at the end of the week!
I’d a mid-afternoon visit from the Brian Yates area rep, whose wallpapers I often use, so I could have a peep at their new season ranges. Of course, I instantly fell in decor lust with their latest variations on the Ulf Moritz ranges in my colours of the moment – wallpapers almost like fabrics in coppers, golds and whites, just delicious. But there was something else which I couldn’t fail to be wowed by – the new ‘Bark Cloth’ wallpaper artwork! Check this out…..
It’s amazing, an eco-warrior of a wallpaper if ever there was one. It’s a completely natural product which is made in Uganda by stripping wafer thin bark from a tree (one would presume in a sustainable way), drying and finishing it, you can see images below:
The texture is rich and tactile to the touch, almost like hide and completely unique.
You likey, you wanty? You better be a lottery winner, a hedge funder or a footballer then ’cause this gorgeousness will set you back £2200 for a 1.3m by 3m panel. Ouch. Back to Project Squeeze to watch Harry hang my Laura Ashley gold and cream flowered paper and day-dream about buying the winning ticket 🙂
