Tiger Eyes Are Watching You

February 21, 2021

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!

Gucci Wallpaper Mural

June 27, 2020


A striking, impactful mural by Gucci. This is placed in the center of an accent wall, and will fit perfectly behind a display / altar in a private home.

The mural comes in a 2-panel set, and two sets were purchased. To fit the space, this installation used three panels (so one panel was not used.) I like the way the tall birds fit perfectly in the center of the scene.

The homeowner will add a wooden frame to the right and left sides of the wallpaper mural, for a more finished look. I’m voting to paint the frame a dusty red.

The mural came sized to fit about a 12′ high wall. This home’s ceiling was less than 8′ high, so much of the top area was cut off and discarded. The manufacturer allowed for this, because the top area contained only sky and a few dragon flies; the important birds were intact at the bottom.

The mural is printed on a standard non-woven material, and was easy to hang using the paste-the-wall method. It was a tad tricky to match and measure, because the pattern started at the floor, instead of the ceiling like most papers do.

Here you are definitely paying for the brand name … each 2-panel set covered a width of 54″, and cost ~ $400 each.

Definitely worth it, because it perfectly fits the homeowner’s space and use.

The home is in the Energy Corridor area of west Houston.
