Here is this well-loved “Woods” pattern again – my umpteenth time to have hung it. Of all the knock-offs out there, people love this original version best.

I hung this on one accent wall (behind the headboard) of a pre-school boy’s room in Bellaire (Houston). He is really into dragons and knights and castles, and the three-dimensional look of this pattern adds to the fantasy feel of his room.

When he came home from school, he shrieked with delight! And then he observed, “There are no dragons on it.” To which I replied with my “Wallpaper Lady’s Lecture” – “Wallpaper is for looking at, not for touching.” Meaning, Don’t even THINK of taping dragons or knights onto that wallpaper! 🙂

This wallpaper pattern is called “Woods” and is by Cole & Son, a British company. It is printed on a non-woven substrate and is a paste-the-wall product. It was nice to work with. It was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby. (713) 520-6262 or dorotasouthwestern@hotmail.com. Discuss your project and make an appointment before heading over to see her.

    Oh but dragons would be lovely on that! 😉
    I actually drew butterflies and other little animals on a piece of this wallpaper.
