Beautiful Bats and Venus Fly Traps

When I found out that this month’s theme post at Sophistique Noir was floral, I knew exactly what to write about. Last spring I participated in EBEW’s floral group post, and I wore florals in Florida, so I’m not against wearing pretty patterns. But I didn’t want to showcase another floral outfit. This time, I want to show you an amazing find: Purple and black bat-and-floral wallpaper!

When my group at work moved into a different building one of the first things I did was explore the area. I’m in a cube but there are a few offices in the building. In one of the swankier offices I found an entire wall of this amazing wallpaper. I don’t know whose space it used to be, but he or she sure knew how to decorate! I love how the office is currently a contractor bay and the paper remains.

I snapped photos and showed my friends my amazing find. I didn’t have a blog when I found this wallpaper but I’m happy to share the photos with you now. I did a web search for “bat wallpaper” and had page after page of desktop wallpaper links. I kept hitting dead ends until my colleague and friend Pleiades found the source: Flavor Paper.

Flavor Paper has a wallpaper section with amazing patterns. Some of my favorites are Flower Pedal, Flower of Love, City Park, and Iris. But nothing is better than Elysian Fields. I prefer the black and purple, but check out the other colors too. In fact, the colors change the look of the paper so much! It might seem obvious, but the same print in antique pink has a totally different effect.

I’d put this up on one wall of a home office or paper the entire bathroom! I think an oval mirror with a silver frame would pop against this background. I love that this paper is pretty with a dark side. Even the plants are dangerous!

What would you do with this paper? Do you have any others that you like?

  1. That is pretty amazing wall paper, and the purple is PERFECT for a feature wall in the bedroom in our apartment ❤ I must track it down.

  2. Oh my god! This wallpaper is amazing! So beautiful. This would be lovely to have in a small room or on one wall. Now I have hard cravings for this!!

  3. oh i so NEED this wallpaper O_O

  4. GASP! Wow! I think if I had that in my office I would try to peel it down and take it with me if I had to leave! I dunno, does wallpaper work that way? Probably not LOL! But thanks for linking that store. GAH!! This stuff is soooo pretty!

  5. Thanks all! Isn’t is amazing? I wish I didn’t have textured paint on my walls or I’d put this up. My place is sprayed with an “orange peel” paint. Great for hiding flaws in the sheetrock installation but wouldn’t wallpaper look lumpy?

    Feature wall – yes. I agree 🙂

  6. Aww, we have orange peel texture too, so wallpaper is out. Otherwise, I’d probably go crazy with these amazing prints! I’d love to work for a company where such personalized decorating choices are acceptable.

  7. I’ve never seen such beautiful, cool wallpaper before! Definately an inspiration.
