Perplexed By Pattern


I wish I had a bunch of awesome updates to tell you about.  But the remodel has stalled out over the last 3 weeks.  No one seems to know why.  It started with bad weather that prevented the crew from digging the footings for the family room expansion, and then turned into a 2 1/2 week long vacation to Bora Bora from all I can guess.  At any rate, no one has worked for a while until yesterday when magically they all showed up again and started working!

In the meantime, I've been doing some behind-the-scenes browsing and shopping.  Although Big Daddy doesn't like to make any decisions he doesn't see as absolutely crucial until the exact moment they are needed, I prefer to actually plan ahead.  I fancy that what color of bedding we choose for the new king sized bed might, say, impact the color of walls we pick.  So I've been preemptively scouting out bedding.

I've also been considering wall stencils.  We have a small laundry on the main floor and a pantry, both off the kitchen, that I thought I would do a wall stencil on. They'll both have a lot of wall space covered by food/shelving/washer & dryer, so I figured something kind of busy wouldn't be too overwhelming there.

I'm in love with pattern right now, and it's taking every fiber of my self control not to want to put pattern EVERYWHERE.  But I'm forcing myself to be limited to drapes, throw pillows, and these few wall stencils. So here are the ones I'm considering.  The walls will be done in pale yellow with white stenciling, so nothing too overpowering...

Please, tell me what you think!!

So....any thoughts?

The entwined one makes my eyes crazy but I really like most of the others. It would be hard for me to choose without seeing them all in the same color because my brain is dumb like that. I've always loved the quatrefoil (Moroccan) one though.

I totally agree, Kate. It's hard to make a decision when they're all in different colors. I wish I could sample them all and see which looked best in pale yellow and white!!
