Sherlock Holmes Wallpaper

photo (27)This wallpaper pattern is the same as is used on the Sherlock Holmes television series. I hung this in a teenaged girl’s bathroom in a beautifully restored 1903 home in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston. The bathroom was in the former attic, now converted to a game room … you will notice that the ceiling is not level, plus there are lots of angled spaces, so the pattern looks a little crooked in some areas.

This paper was made by a company called Spoonflower. You can buy their ready-made wallpapers, or you can have them custom-make something just for you.

At first, I thought the paper would be cheap and difficult to work with, as are the products from many “boutique” wallpaper manufacturers. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really liked the quality and ease of installation of this paper. They only weird thing is that they specify that you overlap the seams, and that results in a ridge along each seam. But the paper is thin, and the pattern is busy, plus the lighting in the room is dim, so this was not noticeable.

I hope I can direct more people buy their wallpaper from this company.

    American version or UK version? I watch the UK version and this paper isn’t familiar…but on the other hand, Benedict Cumberbatch is hard to take eyes away from (horrible sentence is horrible).

    Dorota Hartwig, who sells wallpaper at the Southwestern Paint store on Bissonnet near Kirby, and who watches the British TV version, recognized the pattern immediately. She says it’s in his office, which is shown several times, especially at the beginning of each show. She got me to turn on the show, and I did see it, too … but it was in a little square, like a recessed niche, within a different pattern on a larger wall. Complicated, I know. But it IS there, on the TV show.

    Oh, yeah – she said the same thing about Mr. Cumberbatch. 🙂
