Creepy Wallpapers

Ms. Ward wallpaperAs I have stated before I am not really a wallpaper fan. I do come across ones that I like now and then, but when I think of trying to remove it one day, when I get tired of it, I come to my senses. There is one thing I’m sure of though, I will never want to put bug wallpaper on my walls. This wallpaper, called Ms. Ward, is actually very cool looking, but I know I would start feeling the creepy crawlies every time I looked at it. I like scary, but not creepy crawlies. This was designed by Katie Deedy of Grow House Grow and part of the Naturalist Collection which features long forgotten women of science. Mary Ward (1827-1869), the inspiration for this pattern, was a renowned entomologist. Each wallpaper design has a neat little story attached to it and all of them are worth checking out. Many different papers are in the series, but the one I find incredibly fascinating is the paper called Aleister. That one is based on Ka Cox and her bizarre run-in with the infamous Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) in Cornwall during the summer of 1938 when she mysteriously passed away. Anything attached to “the wickedest man in the world” is usually worth a read.
