    I have a dear, sweet friend (daughter by choice) in England (Surrey, about a 20 minute train ride from London), who would, I am certain, be delighted to try to find a roll of your paper. If you want, just e-mail me the particulars on the paper and your contact info, and I will get it to Sally and put her in touch with you.

      Thank-you so much. I will be extremely grateful if your friend is able to locate a single roll! So far I have had no luck getting around Farrow & Ball’s 3 roll minimum order both here and in the UK. I am looking for a single roll of Farrow & Ball’s, Lotus design wallpaper in BP2008. Best, h

    We experienced the same thing when we left AT&T to switch over to a local internet provider. And then somehow Comcast got involved, and everyone was blaming everyone else and we were without internet for a week. I wanted to strangle every employee I met.

      That is SO sweet! Thank you. I actually tried to order from them a few weeks ago. It is crazy because they will allow you to order 1 roll but then they cancel your order and send a note saying it is a 3 roll minimum! So frustrating. Thanks again.

    If you get far enough along pre-baby that you can reasonably stay in the house, remember that you can always hook up the dishwasher and start using it before the rest of the work is done–it felt really strange to do that when it was sitting in the middle of our kitchen and the counter wasn’t on yet, but from the machine’s perspective, it’s perfectly fine to do! Also, although scheduling can always get in the way, know that our counter install took half a day and our backsplash (which we did ourselves) took three days, and would have only taken one if a professional had done it…so if they do get you the cabinets in 3-4 weeks and the little one is courteous about arrival times, it really just might happen! (We finished four days before our son was born…) Good luck!

    Have you tried contacting Farrow & Ball’s social media people (Twitter, Facebook) to share your story? It seems ludicrous that they can’t/won’t make an exception given your circumstances. There has got to be a way they can make it happen.

    Hi Heather, we hear you! Thanks for choosing our papers for your home and we’d like to help you out here… If you could email [email protected] when you have a moment that’d be fab. (Thanks to Jen in the comments above for reaching out to us on Twitter!)

    Rob, F&B

      Wow! Thanks Jen for contacting Farrow & Ball on my behalf. Rob or anyone at Farrow & Ball…I really hope this can be resolved and that there is someway I can purchase a single roll of Lotus wallpaper, BP2008. I will be so GRATEFUL!!!

      I’m so happy you saw my tweet and that you are going to try to help! Thank you! All of these things would be so stressful for anyone who loves their house, but it’s so much harder when you’re pregnant. I hope Farrow and Ball can play a part in making Heather’s life just a little bit easier at this difficult time.
