The snozzberries taste like snozzberries

I love tongue-in-check design, and though in most instances design of this sort is cast off as low-brow, the Glasgow textile and wallpaper design studio Timorous Beasties has gained much praise even amongst the snootiest of critics. They were even shortlisted for the 2005 Designer of the Year award. They quite cleverly describe their design style as "William Morris on Acid". Nice! I reallllly would like their Toile de Jouy wallpaper which initially looks like a traditional toile scene until a closer look reveals crack addicts, whores, and rif raff. It's all done quite well. You can see more of their whimsy here.

I thought wallpaper was only for computer screens now. I never thought the day would come when I became out of touch with interior decorating style.
