Farrow & Ball, The Fairest Of Them All

There's a beautiful shop called Perry & Co. which stocks Farrow & Ball paint and wallpaper.  They're located across the street from my friend Anita's house in Vancouver and they always have beautiful window displays.  Farrow & Ball recently hosted a contest for its stores, asking them to create an original window display idea using their products.  The store in Vancouver won. The 2 women who run the shop used a lot of imagination and creativity in deciding to do a Downton Abbey theme.  They made-up the mannequins with paint and designed their clothes with wallpaper.  Absolute perfection. farrow&ball1

I really like this wallpaper, Crivelli Trellis, which I find soothing.  I would wallpaper an accent wall or a ceiling, but not a whole room.  I find it sometimes jarring when a whole room is patterned.

Wallpaper.  Is it a do or a don't for you?  Have you ever hung wallpaper?  How did it go?
