I love my zingy lime wallpaper and it's setting off the bears nicely. I did those tests I mentioned:
You can see how it looks below, in the final version of the piece I started Wednesday, but didn't get to showing you. I think the flowers finish it off nicely:
Trouble is, if I 'decorate' both sides of the hall with the same wallpaper, there will be a lot of similar colour spreads, which will not give enough visual variety. So, for true contrast, I have decided to go with peachy orange for the other wall:
My dilemma is: I did that original endpaper piece with the lime and, because we can see the banisters, they should really be against the peach wall.
