Have spent several years eyeing this mural for a future nursery and as soon as I found out I was having a little girl, I immediately purchased it. It is absolutely gorgeous and definitely helped create a whimsical touch to the room. I love sitting in the nursery, staring at it.
All 8 pieces were connected in one long roll, so each piece needed to be cut. Directions that came with it were fairly easy to follow. My husband was mainly the person who put it up, as it turns out having one person smooth it out (in one direction), worked best. The hardest part was having to cut off some of the height. Other viewers felt it was fine, but to me, it was sacrilegious! What helped was placing a few key piece onto the ceiling (such as the hot air balloon and crown). Pieces cut off off the bottom were used to line dresser drawers, so I'm not mourning their loss as much. Still wished the original painting could have been tailored so height would not have to be sacrificed!

oh what fun
I ordered this mural for my office. It's so fun, and looking at it just brightens my mood. The colors are soothing yet vibrant. Installation was really easy. Everyone that looks at it thinks that someone painted it. I am super pleased with this product.

Finally hung this mural last night and love it! I actually purchased it a while ago, but was so afraid of messing it up that it sat in my closet for weeks. Having it professionally installed was out of my budget, so my husband and I finally decided to tackle it ourselves. Glad we did, I'm thrilled with how it turned out. As previous reviews stated it took a good 3 hours (including prep, measuring, etc.) but the instructions were straightforward and easy to follow. There are a few small places where you can see the seems but not noticeable unless you were truly looking. I was a little hesitant to go this bold in our dining room, but now that it's up I am so happy we did. It adds beauty and interest and just looks really darn cool. I love Rebecca Rebouche's work, and am thrilled to have a (giant) piece of her art in my house. If you're on the fence about ordering this piece by all means do it! You will love the end result.
I stressed for two months about installing this wallpaper. I got quotes from local companies, and was disappointed to find out that it would cost more than the wallpaper to have it installed professionally. So we decided to do it ourselves, and I'm so glad we did.
This gorgeous paper is prepasted, which means all you have to do is submerge it in water for a bit to activate it. We watched some videos online about how to wet, "dock," and apply prepasted wallpaper, but the instructions that came with it would have been sufficient.
It wasn't a walk in the park (we don't have square walls by any means, and we had to cut around two windows with ornate details at the corners) but the difficult bits weren't the wallpaper's fault.
Overall I am thrilled with the result. It's a beautiful backdrop for our son's nursery, but we've already decided that if he hates it when he grows older, we'll just switch rooms with it. We love it!

Super Fun Nursery
We chose this paper for one wall in our baby boy's nursery. We loved its whimsy. Application was quick and easy - a bit challenging to line images up.

i put this in my bathroom, just because. it would look great in a kid's room, very whimsical and playful, might be overwhelming on more than one wall. it was very easy to put up, very gluey like the other reviewer said. wasted more than i would have liked because of the large pattern repeat, but c'est la vie. i love it.
I love all the work Nathalie Lete does. I very nearly purchased the Enchanted Forest Mural for my son's room. Wouldn't it be the perfect backdrop for a kids' room, or hallway or wall in a family's living quarters? What a story-starter! I also think it would be great in an author's office/library - as a writer I love surrounding myself with inspirational pieces of art. The Enchanted Forest and this beautiful and vibrant Great Meadow Mural are such wonderful pieces. This would be amazing in my current office. Unfortunately I live in San Francisco where in many traditional homes have 8' ceilings. I don't feel right ordering these for $300 or $500 and then chopping off the bottom 2 feet so they fit the room. Sure, I could repurpose the trimmings, but what a waste. I wish these came a bit shorter for those us of with average ceilings.

It feels as if it has always belonged in my home.
This paper is exactly what my dining room has always needed. I admit that I don't mind making a statement but this was a big step for even me. Now I wish that I hadn't waited so long. My mom's style is danish modern and she loves it. And my classic mother in law loves it too.

this is actually a question for anthro, or anyone that has purchased this product already. What are the widths of each individual panel? I plan on using this inside bookcases and want to know how many panels per bookcase I will need.
Gorgeous piece of wall art. Well done nathalie! another amazing contribution to the design world.
LOVE! Treat this wallpaper like amazing shoes or a bag, it makes a HUGE impact, so you may just need a little of it. Our is in our entryway. If you want something practical, and you are flipping a house...this is probably not the wallpaper for you. But if you have great sense of humor (and style to boot), this is the wallpaper for you. You definitely need a really good paper hanger. The color and quality of the paper is top notch.

Because - It's absolutely amazing
Classy, fun, worth the money. Art, as wallpaper.
By the way, so is the bookcase in the phote, which is an anthropologie piece.
Suggect ordering swatch to be sure this is you and also chat with costumer service when ordering because the paper comes in 4 rolls and need to be ordered in bundles, so the animals will have the correct seam to complete each party animal.
Paperhanger said it was great and easy to hang, and no problem working with 4 rolls.
There arent foxes in New Zealand. But this is cute.

Just a note
I think this wallpaper looks great but was surprised to see the description. It says it's based on the designers trip to NZ, I'm pretty sure as a New Zealander that they didnt see any foxes, squirrels, raccoons or kangaroos in the NZ "woodlands". Still very quirky mural.
