The Winners!

Wow, it wasn't as hard deciding as I thought it would be. The one on the left is for the foyer. I love that it's not too bold but yet it has a statement. I love the metallic sheen to it. I'm going to paint the rest of the foyer and hallways the white color of the flower, and paint the half bath the blue color so that it coordinates. I'll probably frame some of the wallpaper for the half bath as an art piece to really tie it all together. The one on the right is for a headboard in our bedroom. I chose this one because I can paint the wall any color I want (probably a light blue or blue/green) without having to match it up to the wallpaper (I liked some of the ones with blue/green flowers but I didn't love the shade of the flowers).

Update: I'm now thinking about how cute the one with the brown background and the birdcage and birds would be...especially when I decorate with a birdcage with little fabric birds in it to match.

Those are great! How close is that blue to your kitchen blue?

Leah said...

Not close at all. It's much lighter and doesn't have any green in it. Plus it's really shiny. I would call it icy blue and the kitchen color turquoise.

Is it sad that I don't know what a feature wall is?

Leah said...

I'm going to put wallpaper on just one wall of the foyer to be a focal point. Designers mention "feature walls" a lot on HGTV.

What are you going to do with all the samples? They are so pretty, you could frame a few and hang them as artwork.

Oh, I love Julia's idea!
