Oh god, you guys. We are experiencing some major wallpaper indecision up in ‘dis piece. It all started because one miss Scoops Allen got swayed by some wallpaper that normally I would never in a million, gazillion years go for. I was in trouble from the moment I laid eyes on it – I’ve had permanent blinders on, and have barely been able to consider any other paper. This dreamy paper is the new Rifle Paper Co wallpaper design for Hygge & West seen above on the right. I have no idea why I love it; maybe the colors, maybe the grandma style floral pattern done-up with a slightly more modern vibe, or maybe I just do, okay?! It was one of the first patterns I spied when I began considering wallpaper options for the bedroom wall. At first I thought, ‘well that’s kinda cool but way not my taste’, and then I couldn’t stop thinking about it. The thing is, it’s totally not my usual taste AT.ALL. I am very afraid if I follow through with this whim that I will regret it very quickly. I have a hunch that this is just one of those fleeting love affairs, and really it just won’t last. AND when your best pal, your mom, and your husband all tell you that the wallpaper you are crushing on is “a surprising choice” and totally “not what they expected” (aka the midwestern way of them saying, “yuck, dude”) does that mean you shouldn’t put it all over your walls?
Okay so all that stuff being said, I’ve been trying to search out other options looking at things that I would typically go for, remember when I did this black and white wallpaper roundup a year or so ago? I have always wanted B&W wallpaper in the bedroom. The Woods wallpaper (on the left) by Cole & Sons wasn’t included in that list, but it’s been something I’ve been thinking more and more about. A little more sophisticated them some of my other options, yet still modern and best of all black and white. Not only that it gets me right in that Urban Cabin genre that I so love. I think it could look really awesome in our room, compliment the scene I have going on in the sunroom and most of all, Jeff really likes it – and I like it when he is happy. I worry that it’s a little too kitschy, but really this pattern has been in production for years, and years, and years – so it’s kind of a classic.
Both of these patterns would go well with what the new look in the sunroom – a style and color palette that I plan on spreading around the bedroom emphasizing the neutrals (navy, white and grey) and using less pattern then I did in the sunroom. Anyway, what do you guys think? What’s a girl to do, really?
