A friend of mine suggested that pigeons have a bad rep in London, saying that if they were the only birds in the world, we’d find them beautiful, all soft grey feathers tinged with shimmery iridescence. I can’t agree, especially since I’m constantly plagued by them trying to make a nest on my balcony (they succeeded once – man oh man those baby pigeons were ugly). The ones on this lovely wallpaper by Thornback and Peel are welcome any time though; they look plump and friendly, plus they’ve got the full complement of legs, which is not something you see too often in the capital. The wallpaper is quirky without being loud – in fact it’s quiet and subtle, in its own way – and great for a small space such as a cloakroom.
