Crown Wallcoverings is quite possibly the worst wallpaper I have ever had the misfortune to hang!! I’ve seen mixed reviews on the Decorators Forum.

Pretty design and nice restful colours but omg, this Crown Wallcoverings stuff epitomises everything that’s wrong with Laura Ashley.

If I hadn’t had my paperwizz, extra-long Axus blade, Olfa knife and 20 years’ experience, it would have been a disaster. And all the wife could do was point out a tiny tear in a top corner and a tiny pattern mismatch below the edge of the window by 2mm 😞🙄 Husband was appreciative though.

Either way, I’m feeling proud of myself for getting through the day and doing a good job for

a mere human. 😁

And that’s it, My Crown Wallcoverings wallpaper review. Just avoid it as much as you can!

You’ve done a great job – I hung this one a few years back and, as you say, everything that was bad was bad. Good result 👍🏻

Nothing wrong with Laura Ashley paper it’s changed I’ve just papered 6-8 room sets in 6 different stores not a problem hanging 16 rolls a day.
