Timorous Beasties: Red

“I suppose we’ve always been maximalists,” says Alstair McAuley of Timorous Beasties, the Glasgow-based company known for its exquisite oversize-pattern wallpapers and fabrics. McAuley and partner Paul Simmons have a flair for the subversive, too: Glasgow Toile substitutes an urban milieu with drug addicts, homeless and working prostitutes for traditional Toile de Jouy scenery—which comes in either wallcoverings or textiles, as shown on the armchair.

  • This wallpaper eliminates the need for a 3D object for a light source. The wallpaper can be turned on or off as the light source. I think it's boss. I don't own this, but I really respond to the idea and the visual.

This is a very striking wallpaper -- you have to go to the site and look at the full wall to really appreciate it. I think it must be meant to accent just one wall -- the octopus part is easily twice as tall as me. Decorating all the rooms in your house with this design would be... overwhelming. I assume it scales depending on the size of your wall. The darkly amusing text on the website: "The Octopus originates from a well known fish merchant (Pescheria Brunelli) in Bologne and was photografed on location for the gohome collection by C.S.Kisselbach. The octopus was treat respectfully and after its grand appearance was cooked and eaten. "
