Tiger Eyes Are Watching You

It takes a guts to go with a crazy pattern like this! So here we are in Sugarland (far southwest suburban Houston), in a nicely renovated home – which has been left with miles and miles of plain white walls.

Well, you’ll wake up when you walk into the hall bathroom!

The pattern is called “Tiger Face” and is by Gucci.

It is a non-woven material, and I used the paste-the-wall installation method.

The paper was way thick and stiff and difficult to maneuver, especially going into corners and doubly especially going behind and under the toilet. Kinda like working with cardboard.

The cat faces though, are electrifying!

    Wow, I’m not usually much of a Gucci guy, and I’m sorry this was hard to work with, but the effect is stunning. Love how the cat faces fit perfectly end to end in the horizontal rows behind the toilet with nothing cut off their sides.

    Assuredly not my taste, but you are right, I would definitely wake up seeing same upon entering the washroom!

    Great job!

    Thank you for noticing that, David. This doesn’t happen by accident … it’s what we call “balancing.” In fact, the client had to buy an additional double-roll bolt so I had enough material to do this. But once I explained how the design would fall nicely centered on the wall, she was happy with the additional purchase, and LOVED the finished room!
