UPDATE We've been reliably informed that these aren't Jersey cows! They're actually Finnish cows, which the designer Miina Äkkijyrkkä.is a huge fan of. What brilliant cattle knowledge our readers have.
Cows on a bright pink background. That sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? But in the creative, capable hands of Marimekko, these cows look very splendid indeed. Sure, they are still a little ridiculous, but in the best way possible.
Look at their little faces! They're adorable. I'm thinking this is a wallpaper perfect for the kitchen or dining room. And yeah, probably a downstairs loo, but I don't actually know anyone how has one of those. London is all full of flats, we don't really have a downstairs anything.
I don't think I like the green design very much (but then I never was a fan of lime green) and I'm not sure I'd put this design in my living room. But I do love it. The little cow faces are mega cute, and the bold background stops it from being too childish. Instead it's bold, striking and very cool indeed.
Like it? It's £72.21 a roll from Wallpaper Direct.
