How to use good wallpaper...badly
I found this photo on Flicker of this amazing wallpaper. It was gorgeous and retro and I've never seen it before. I thought for sure that it belonged to a room with equally retro furniture and funky prints on the wall. I just loved the little pops of metallic gold and winding stems....then I saw the way the owners furnished the room...
They crammed a massive china cabinet into the corner and slammed an ugly, dark leather sofa up against the wall. There's nothing on the walls at all to break up the pattern. What a waste of a beautiful wallpaper!
