We had a boring wall that needed a little love, and our good friends at Graham & Brown were nice enough to hook us up with a few rolls of their gorgeous Tattoo wallpaper by Kelly Hoppen (Dragons’ Den UK anyone?). The project has been freshly completed and we just can’t wait to share it with you!
Our goal was to create a stunning focal point in the main living space. We knew we wanted something dark for dramatic impact so black-on-black damask seemed like the perfect choice. Indeed, Tattoo ended up being a splendid pick – just check out our before-and-after photos below!
The project itself was a lot of fun and we absolutely loved working with this wallpaper… super easy to install! The large pattern made alignment a breeze, and the dark colors ensured a seamless application. Really, Graham & Brown are industry leaders when it comes to this stuff. Their various collections are perfect for hardcore design enthusiasts and wallpaper newbies alike.
Why We Chose Tattoo…
The wallpaper itself is absolutely gorgeous. We love the pattern – timeless, beautiful, dramatic, organic, a modern take on a sophisticated classic. Luxurious metallic highlights pop out against the matte black background, creating a powerful sense of depth and dimension. The sheen is subtle but catches the eye immediately.
We searched endlessly for the right pattern and this wallpaper is simply perfect! As editors and designers, we’ve come across countless wallpaper options over the years and Graham & Browns’ Tattoo wallpaper is one of our all-time faves.
Tattoo is available in three color options: black on white, cream on cream, and (our favorite!) black on black. It’s a nonwoven “paste the wall” option so you don’t have to worry about soaking or expansion, something we definitely appreciated during installation. The fact that it’s washable is also a HUGE plus, especially with kids and pets. We want it to last forever!
BIG Thanks to Graham & Brown
Overall, we had a blast! It’s amazing to see what a little bit of beautiful wallpaper can accomplish. We want to send a big happy shout-out to Graham & Brown for hooking us up – this company has been such a wonderful inspiration and friend to the FOKaL community. Tattoo completely transformed the open concept space and we’re extra grateful for that.
