I came across this some time ago and it has been sat in my ‘to blog’ folder ever since. As you all must know by now I am completely obsessed with wallpaper. Not so much your bog standard wallpaper though, it has to have something unique and unusual about it. However, I also love other wallcoverings such as leather, wood, stone etc. So imagine my delight when I came across this gorgeous paper by Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek.
Scrapwood wallpaper combines the character and individuality of worn old wooden planks with the practicality of wallpaper. The wallpaper is available in six different types depicting different colours, textures and quality of wooden planks. It is made from top-quality FSC certified paper and has no pattern so hanging it is child’s play.
The heavy-duty, non-woven wallpaper is colourfast and washable with a soft cloth. Also no wallpapering table is necessary as paste is applied to the wall rather than the paper.
Due to the extremely high-resolution printing, the images on the paper are very realistic and from a distance I am sure that it would be impossible to tell that it is wallpaper rather than wooden planks.
