Not quite the wake up call I was expecting to hear at 7 o'clock this morning! According to a 4 year old, the wall has jellyfish with not enough legs all over it. According to the interior designer, it's very stylish seedpods from Next!
I think we bought the wallpaper about 3 months ago after a long research process, with countless samples being pinned up, rejected and sent off to the 'junk modelling box' at school. Last night, we finally got around to pasting it on the wall. We thought it would be an easy job having conquered patterned wallpaper in the bedroom and with this room being professionally plastered the walls are super-flat!
I know this sounds like a lame excuse, but we think the wallpaper has a print error on it. The pattern matches perfectly in the middle then gets worse the further away from that point you go. Bizarrely, I know it's there but you don't see it - the pattern seems to have absorbed the slight error.
So, as it turns out, it's a job well done!
