Help. I'm crippled by the decision making process.  
Okay. So the powder bath. (Stop snickering, Celeste.) In the new house. It's the half bath. That guests will use. And it's the only room that I requested to put wallpaper in.

Who knew that there were that many different kids of wallpaper?

I was woefully unaware.

I've narrowed it down, though. 

A. Yellow and Red

B. Yellow and black

C. Taupe and brow/black

D. And my favorite, the one I could find a flipping picture of,
Ochre & black and brown toile

Keeping in mind that the lavatory and cabinets are cream, the floor is cream hexagonal tiles and black diamonds in a flower pattern, and the trim is cream, which would YOU pick? 
Poll #1135884 Help Perse Choose

Which one would you choose?

A Yellow and Red
B Yellow and Black
C Taupe and brown
D Ochre and black/brown

P.S. If you think all my taste is in my ear, I could do without hearing that, just so's ya know. :)

I like B, mainly because I like the pictures. :D
is pretty fucking ninjacaramelsilver on February 9th, 2008 10:07 pm (UTC)
I think all of them are pretty, but I'm tipping between A and C.

Without seeing the one that is your favorite, I'm going with C. They are all lovely, though.

I only picked c because I couldn't see d. I really have no imagination for what I can't see.

Oh, girl. I wish I were there. :)

I didn't vote b/c I couldn't see D either, but I also liked C of the first three. (A was pretty, but then I thought of it covering a whole wall and was all O_o) :D

I wish I was going to see it... but I like the sound of D. Plus, I'm pretty sure you probably have pretty good taste, so if that's your favourite ;).

I went with D, but I have one question for you: Wallpaper in a wet area?
seegrim: Crown!Celesteseegrim on February 10th, 2008 03:18 am (UTC)
Hi, Jen!

Wallpaper's actually quite sturdy. Once it's hung and dried, it's pretty much on there until you pull it off--and even then it's difficult.

When I was young I lived in a really old house, with some of the original decades and decades-old wallpaper, even in the bath. It's actually quite more durable than paint.

And that's my home-decorating tip of the day!

I've just seen what happens when water gets into plaster (I have some minor holes in the grout in our shower and it's made a right mess of the walls on the other side), so I could just envision the mess it would make with wallpaper. Though, that being said I can imagine a really good quality paper would stop a lot of the moisture seeping through. I guess I'd just never imagined hanging paper in a wet area. We tend to tile or paint, after layers of anti-mold preparation ;)

so, showing my ignorance here. Is ochre yellow? If so please describe.

I say go with your gut. Whichever one is your fav use, it. You had said you were going to do black and white toile and I still like that idea. Did you change your mind or were there not any black and white toiles?

Love, M

Don't get the yellow and black!! Have you ever read the short story, The Yellow Wallpaper??? Creepy. Although your selection is quite lovely, my mind has been warped by the story, which has left me with the impression that yellow wallpaper = steady decline into psychosis.

I picked A. Because you know me - show me red and I'll pick it, no matter how hideous it is. Besides, the cream/white in the picture will look a bit like the cream everywhere else. And the red and yellow will add a splash of colour to the otherwise cream and black room. Yes?

That said, I have no clue what D looks like. If you like it, go for it. It's your house!

i'm with mom. what is ochre? i would say go with a smaller toile since the space is small.

Can't see D, so going with B. Just because :D

I like C, but D sounds good too! ('course you've probably decided by now)
