(I´m sorry for this blurry and terrible picture. I need a wide angle lense. Seriously.)
So the bedroom. The sofa has been delivered and I´ve assembled the new dresser over the weekend. Everything else is on hold until I´ve made up my mind about the wallpaper. I´ve decided I want to wallpaper the area behind our bed. It´s a 3x4 m piece of wall that is framed by old beames. I´ve seen great examples lately for this look, like this one, and I think it could definitely work in our space. Here are the contenders:
I love this one. It´s pretty and calm. The brown tones would correspond well with the beames and would add some warmth to the room. The thing is I´ve ordered swatches and in real life it is way darker than in the picture. As the bedroom isn´t exactly a bright room I wonder whether it would get too gloomy in there. Then again, it´s a bedroom. It could be cozy actually.
I have loved this wallpaper for a long time. I still do! It´s so sweet and cheerful and I love lily of the valley, so. The colors would go well with everything else in the room and, well, there actually are colors as opposed to the one above. I want the upstairs to be a bit more colorful than the downstairs so while option #1 would be my favorite downstairs, I think option #2 is the stronger contender for upstairs. I´m a bit concerned that it might be too busy though. I found a picture of this wallpaper in a bedroom setting and yes, well, busy indeed.
What do you think? Which one is your favorite and why?
