Schumacher’s popular “Acanthus Stripe”
The very popular Cole & Sons “Woods”

The Acanthus Stripe is a grasscloth, and, being by Schumacher, is very expensive. Adding the wainscoting 3′ up reduces the amount of paper needed, and also makes the pattern less “stripe-y” in a small room like this bathroom. An additional bonus is that the tile helps keep splashed water off the wallpaper, which can be stained easily by water, toiletries, or cleaning agents.

I’ve hung Cole & Son’s Woods many times, but have never seen this colorway. I am thinking this is a special color they are making available only through Anthropologie. I think the strong diagonal bent of the design works better in this softer color than in the black-on-white version.

    Your work is beautiful! Can you recommend a paste the wall paste that I can buy here in the U.S. for the cole and sons woods wallpaper?

      Hi Susan. Thanks for reading my blog, and thanks for the compliment! C&S “tub paste” sounds daunting. But all it is is the same as our pre-mixed vinyl adhesive. BUT – you must be aware that certain pastes will stain non-woven materials such as C&S. So don’t use clay, don’t use 234, don’t use 880, and don’t use any dry powder you mix with water. You can use Roman 838, or Sure Stik / Dynamite / Garner Gibson 785 or 780 (which is what I use). Some Sherwin-Williams carry Roman, and most of them seem to carry Dynamite.
