Timorous Beasties Design studio

Me and Lisa love wallpapers! It's a great way to decorate a wall. Timorous Beasties is a design studio based in Glasgow, that do textiles and wallpapers. They have defined an iconoclastic style of design once described as “William Morris on acid.” Typical is the Glasgow Toile. At first glance it looks like one of the magnificent vistas portrayed on early 1800s Toile de Jouy wallpaper, but closer inspection reveals a nightmarish vision of contemporary Glasgow where crack addicts, prostitutes and the homeless are depicted against a forbidding backdrop of dilapidated tower blocks and scavenging seagulls. I think it's a great idea and I love design with a twist, where you experience something further when you look into it.

Many of Timorous Beasties wallpapers are hand printed. I just bought this cool toile wallpaper called Decouper 3 from their Toile collection. It's available to order through Tapet-cafe. Look at their selection here.
