Now, I know it's bold. Not so much the pattern itself, but the depth of the relief. But we're going to run it all the way up the wall (just one wall), and paint it a very neutral off-white, and I think it's going to do a great job of actually enhancing the art glass in the window, and bringing the whole kitchen together in a more coherent way. I can see it in my head; I'm just hoping the vision in my head is going to match up with the reality.
Look, if you can't be bold with wallpaper, what can you be bold with? It's just paper. Or rather, linoleum.
(And yes, I know some of you have a deep and abiding hatred of wallpaper, and I'm sorry if I've scarred you here, but I like it. Possibly because I've never tried to take it down.)
