I love it, but it just won't work in the space I wanted it for. So, I've decided to step away from papering the TV / Karaoke Room of Awesomeness for now and go with a gallery wall instead. I can always paper it when the perfect one reveals itself to me.
Sadly this decision left a wallpaper void in my life. This morning, I chuckled warmly and rubbed my chubby hands together with glee* when I saw this "after" pinned to one of my sister's boards. Wallpapered bookshelves in my home office seem like a perfect way for me to experiment with wallpaper without having to resolve my pattern commitment issues.
*No, my hands aren't really chubby. This is just something I say to creep out my sister.
