Marimekko Pieni Unikko Lemon Wallpaper, Yellow/Green, 14162
Pricey, colourful, but beware of faulty paper
I loved this design from the moment I saw it, although why it is £16 more than the blue version is hard to understand. Anyway I bought it to brighten up a very small study room, cut the lengths, pasted it on the walls and then after all my hard work (on a day off) I noticed that some of the green flowers on the right of the paper had run into the yellow ones. This isobviously a fault of the printing of the paper as it runs throughout 3/4 of the roll and always on the same flower. At this price it should have been noticed before sending out and other rolls must be affected. I rang Customer Services who were very helpful and I am getting a replacement roll but whether I can now be bothered to do all the work again is debatable. Anyway love the design, the price is far too high for a medium quality paper. If you decide to buy may be a good idea to suggest they check the roll first to avoid wasting time and effort like I did. This has put me off buying Marikemmo paper again which is a shame as I really like the designs.
