Remember the old Ming Circus wallpaper in the entry? It has been transformed with Gucci Herbarium and it was fabulous, until I noticed a big error. Can you spot it?
No, it’s not that the paper is missing over the door. The installers haven’t gotten to that piece yet.
Notice the butterflies in the pattern that are flying upside down? <cringe>. Gucci actually rolled their paper upside down. Typically the end of the roll is the top of the wall. Typically the wallpaper rolls down the wall. However, in this case, the top of the roll was the bottom of the wall (not standard). It was not my installers mistake and Gucci is going to fix this issue with their manufacturer. I guess that is what happens when you are an early adopter? Unfortunately we will have to strip the paper and re-wallpaper the entry. Thankfully it was not a huge space and thankfully Tapia’s Works is fantastic and is doing this again for me. Needless to say, if anyone is interested in using this paper be extra careful about reviewing your roll and the orientation. It is possible that your paper too will be rolled upside down such that the top of the roll is the bottom of the wall…

Love how it looks and considering this wallpaper In Black for my bathroom. The wallpaper seems very long, how large is the space and how many rolls did you need to get?
Here is what you need to know about this paper – First, Gucci made a manufacturing mistake and rolled this paper upside down. We had to install twice. I do not know if this has been fixed or not, but make sure you check. The butterflies should by flying rightside up! My space is a circular entry with 5 big doors, so there was a lot of cutting that needed to happen. For a small bathroom you would probably only need 2-3 rolls.
10’ high ceilings and I believe we used 3 rolls.
