Wallpapering a Floor?


Have you ever wallpapered a floor? I’ve seen it done in exhibitions and now I’m considering doing my hall floor which is currently linoleum in the most horrid peige (pink-beige) shade. It’s kind of like those stone slabs I hate outside but inside. Aren't I lucky to have so much?

Anyway I think I’m going to give it a try and it will last as long as it will last, at least until I figure out what I want to do permanently. Three coats of vanish on top of the wall paper should do it I think.

Now the big question is. Which wallpaper to choose?! I’d love a bit of color and preferably one color (Kelly green? Blue?) on white and I want some sort of pattern. I’ve already tried the Marimekko pattern above and the lily pad pattern too but neither are perfect. Too much black I think. Cole & Son's Vivienne Westwood Squiggle is a strong contender at the moment though.

Any other suggestions?
