at home . dotswold wallpaper

26 Mar

a couple of years ago, as i was finishing up lila’s toddler bedroom, i came across this dotswold wallpaper and immediately knew it needed be in her room one day. last year, i ordered a swatch and fell even more in love. earlier this year, i finally went to order some, and anthro has discontinued selling it :( i’ve been in touch with customer service and they are unable to share the designer so i’m reaching out into blogland to see if anyone out there can help!

even if i can only get my hands on a small piece, i’d be happy. happier yet if i can find a couple of rolls…

i know it’s a long shot, but if you have used this paper (or know someone who has) and would be willing to sell any unused portion i would be all sorts of happy. or if you can check your roll and see if there is a designer other than anthropologie listed anywhere on the product, perhaps i can find it for sale somewhere else! (edit: i’ve found the designer! now to find out if it is being printed by anyone else. still definitely on the lookout if anyone has any they’d be willing to part with.)

fingers crossed!!

    I don’t know but the girl from this blog may know. She has it in her house.

    Well, I did try a search myself but no luck. If you do happen to find some and need me to smuggle it back from the US, let me know! XO

    Maybe, pin it on pinterest and ask if anyone has any you can buy?

    Hey Andrea!

    I recognized the paper the moment I saw it because my wallpaper is also sold through Anthro. Sadly, I don’t remember the designer, either! I’m usually pretty good at this stuff and keep patterns in my archives, so if I can find it I’ll share.

    If you’re unable to find the pattern, let me know. I don’t have any wallpaper that’s exactly the same, but if anything catches your eye at Grow House Grow I’ll give you a little discount. Sucks not having exactly what you want!

      hey katie! thank you so much, i really appreciate any help! and double the thanks for your generous offer. you have some beautiful papers and if i can’t get my hands on the dotswold one, i will take a closer look and see if anything works :) xo.

    PS: The roll’s width indicates that it’s printed in Europe, even though it says USA (27 inches is US standard, 20 inches is Euro/UK). I’ll keep ya posted:)

    It might be a Minttu design, at least according to this blog:

    • andrea March 26 2012 at 9:39 pm #

      yep! it’s from pattern bakery — just waiting to hear back from them and see if anyone else is selling the paper :) thanks erin!

    Hi I bought 3 rolls awhile back for my dining room but I probably only need 2. Did you still need that extra roll? Email me if you do.

    • andrea September 28 2012 at 7:23 pm #

        Andrea, I know that this is almost 2 years later but do you know how I can get that paper because the website says discontinue and really want it for my daughters room, wondering if you can possibly help?

        • andrea March 21 2014 at 1:18 pm #

          hi kim. i ended up getting my hands on some by calling anthropologie customer service, but as far as i know, it is not sold anywhere else. good luck!

    [...] (the phone customer service… not so much the email customer service) for helping get this wallpaper safely into my hands. i can’t wait to see it up in lila’s room [...]
