Well, Danika's still got me inspired with her Chinoiserie painted wallcovering. As I mentioned, I might do something similar in our upstairs bath. I love the idea of a tonal version of this Paul Montgomery trellis and birds, but I'd rather do something organic so I don't have to measure things out.
Fornasetti malachite wallcovering in a sort of white wash paint? Is it too much? Will it look like a rash?
faux bois would be the way to go. Here are two versions one more rustic and one more abstracted.
