It’s not often that I have to ask for interior advice. Usually i’m the one being inundated with questions, but i’m really in two minds as to this, so I thought i’d leave the decision up to you guys. Poll at the bottom of this blog post!
To see my full lounge room tour click here.
This wallpaper was here when we first moved in. I’m not a big fan of feature walls, especially textured wallpaper ones so I had planned to remove it as soon as we’d moved in. However, once our furniture was in I actually looked at it & thought it was ok.
It doesn’t look it in the pictures as the lighting is good, but it is quite dark.
Over time, i’ve been doubting my decision purely because it makes it quite hard to add accessories & especially any colour to the lounge. For example, the lilac check cushions from Next I bought for my Style At Home photoshoot (they’ll be back out in Spring/Summer once my Autumn/Winter burnt orange check version cushions are put away). Now, I LOVED the colour they added to a very ‘beige’ room. They looked fantastic with the sofas & footstool but couldn’t help but feel that the wallpaper colour just didn’t go.
On the other hand, would it look too bare without it?
If removed, it would be painted the same colour as the other walls. I could then add frames or wall art.
We had the same wallpaper on the opposite wall in the kitchen, when this removed it was amazing how much bigger & brighter the space looked. This was done before the kitchen cupboards were also painted which lifted the room even more as you can see below
I’m also thinking all things Christmas at the moment & although our decorations are very traditional, I do feel like placing a tree infront of it may clash.
Below is the poll – id really appreciate your votes. If you have any suggestions then comments would be greatly appreciated.
I’ll be going with the highest vote answer by Friday 13th November.
