Ivy Hollow - wallpaper options

by brae  

I bet the rural post office would have been plaster on the inside, maybe wood paneled...but I'm going fancier. I wonder if this building might have been repurposed to be our post office, or perhaps the townspeople just had money and style. :D Options are as follows in no particular order. Trim color can be chosen later, but I am figuring a dark rustic wood floor and baseboards. One thing to remember is there are five window openings and I'm sure to add some maps and advertisements, so there won't be large sections of pattern.

Graphic 45 - Cityscapes Collection - Crossroads: Love the name and colors. I thought it might be too big and busy, but it rather works for me.

Graphic 45 - Cityscapes Collection - Grand Tour: Also a great color. Reminds me of old playing cards.

Kaiser Craft - Provincial Collections - Chaise: This one does seem busy to me and might be better as a linoleum floor in another build.

Brodnax Prints - 1VT321 - Hospitality: A vertical stripe pattern is what I had in the back of my mind all along. The dots are actually tiny flowers, so it is not as stark as a true stripe. This is the lightest of the papers, which might work better for a small interior.

Brodnax Prints - 1AN103 - Camel Caravan (named for the border that I wouldn't be using here): A little busy but still fun.

Time to think on it. :]

They are all really great papers, but I think I like the first or the stripes the best. I love the pattern on the first paper and it might be nice with a 'swirly' pattern as backdrop of square shelves and other squarish office fittings. So even though this room is so little, I don't think it will be overpowering once all the fixtures, fittings and maps are in in + I think it is the one that best compliments the pretty rug. It will be great to see which one you decide on. Anna

I like the stripes - reminds me of a turn of the century shop here.

I agree with Anna, the first or the stripes, though the Camel would be a wonderful linoleum floor as well.

I like the first one best, to be honest; seems to me to fit the era more than a less busy/lighter one. Mind you, I'm basing this on no research, just what "feels" right to me. ::winsome grin::
