I just bought my first home and am not handy at ALL, so I hesitated before getting this wallpaper for the inside of my open pantry. But it looked so beautiful online that I had to get it!
The paper looks even better in real life than online. The birds are silver and large - perfect for making a bold statement. The adhesive on the wallpaper made it so easy to install - you just cut the paper to the size you need, dip it in warm water, and stick it on the wall. You can shift it around a bit after adding it to the wall and while it is still wet, which makes lining up the pattern a breeze.
All in all, it took me about 30 minutes to install this in my pantry (including the time it took to remove the food and shelves!), and it looks great! I would post a picture, but I haven't painted yet so the rest of my kitchen is too embarrassing!

I cannot recommend this wallpaper highly enough! I was looking for wallpapers online and not only were they much more expensive than this Anthro wallpaper - they also required a wallpaper specialist to hang on the wall!
I had never hung wallpaper and although it took a little while to get used to, it was relatively easy to hang with the help of a friend. I have received countless compliments on the paper and it has added real vibrancy to the entrance of my apartment.
The yellow of the wallpaper is as it appears online, however please note that the birds have a silver sheen to them.

Amazing, Rich Colors
This wallpaper is even more beautiful in person. The colors are so amazing -- at least get a swatch before you decide. It is beautiful. I tragically couldn't use it, only because the color of the paper was so close to the color of my 1950's bathroom tile, but not close enough, and it clashed. I only wish it had worked!
The colors are a goldenrod yellow backround, silver/grey/white birds and flowers, with black outlines and brown branches. There are metallic highlights in silver over the birds and gold dots on the small flowers -- these aren't heavy metallic, but a thin layer that looks like it had been brushed on like watercolors.
Anthropologie accepted my return at the store with no questions asked. In fact, the employees were all admiring it while they processed the return.
This paper is amazing! I had never used wallpaper before and was a little worried to give it a shot. I read the review below about the paper ripping and almost didn't buy it. But I am so glad I did! With a little help from someone who had wallpapered before the job went quickly and I had no issues what so ever. I get so many compliments!

Beautiful, amazing show stopper - wallpaper
Amazing wallpaper that completes the space with pop and personality. I love all of Hygee & West papers and use them in many projects. The quality is great and the patterns are unique, whimsical and fantastic. I will keep coming back for more and recommend it to anyone looking for an interesting and impactful statement.

Love this wallpaper!
I recently used this wallpaper in my home and did not experience any issues with the quality of paper. In fact, it was very sturdy, hung really easily, and most importantly, looks fantastic! I would highly recommend this wallpaper and am already trying it find a new way to use Hygge & West patterns elsewhere in my home!
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.
Very high quality and easy to install. Looks realistic

I love it!
I got the sample first to gauge this paper's weight, and immediately knew it was more a large poster than a true wallpaper. It arrived just now and my boyfriend and I have put it up with thumbtacks on the bathroom wall in like 2 minutes! And it is fab! Plus this way I can take it with me when I move!
As I write this he is still in there reading the titles of the "books!" :) (and I actually have some of the books in the piece which is kinda cool). When this goes on sale I am buying more!
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.
Bought for powder room redo. Loved the whimsical pattern. Purchased sink and floor around wallpaper. Easy to install. Could not be happier!

Beautiful, whimsical wallpaper
I purchased this wallpaper for my bathroom. I've never wallpapered before and was anxious to try because it's a pricey wallpaper. After viewing a YouTube video numerous times, I finally had enough courage to try. I'm only done halfway and it's beautiful and makes the bathroom feel luxurious! It's pre-pasted so all you have to do it soak it in warm water for 30 seconds and apply to wall. I have to purchase one more roll to complete the bathroom wall. It matches nicely with the ruffled shower curtain I purchased from Anthro. It's pricey but well worth it!
This wall paper brightened up our lives with color, vibrancy and sense of achievement.
The paper is of utmost best quality and perfect design. Check out the pictures of our main room. It hardly does justice to the print but gives you a good idea.
