Lotus BP 2013
Stunning design that is a real talking point
We have just painted our hall, stairs and landing in Joa's White and were concerned it looked a little boring so decided to wallpaper a feature wall at the top of the stairs. I fell in love with the Lotus design and F&B were incredibly helpful (via their Facebook page) in recommending suitable colourways in this design. Samples were delivered next day and we chose BP2013. We only needed 1 roll which wasn't a problem (I believe there used to be 3 roll minimum order-no longer the case) and although we were expecting to have to wait a week for delivery, we received the paper within 2 days!
As the paper is hand printed there are very slight anomalies in the print which didn't worry us other than one section where there appeared to be a small paint mark on the light background but, as it would have sat right at eye level as you climbed the stairs, we had to discard this sheet. Thankfully we were able to reuse it at the edge of the wall as we only had 1 roll (being unable to return rolls is a bit frustrating when the rolls are so pricey).
The paper is very heavy to work with but we just mixed a thicker paste mix, as recommended. Once hung the paper looks stunning, everyone who has seen it has been wow'ed by it.
F&B's customer service has also been fantastic.

Of the four samples I ordered the lotus paper is by far my favorite. Even though it entails an intricate design, it allows for versatility of decor choice and the neutral colors enhance the mood of any room.
