What a difference a coat of paint can make! I've been considering painting over the floral wallpaper in the guestroom for a few years and we finally did it. (I'm using the "royal we" since we hired a nice fellow to paint it for us. I chose a color that I've named "creamsicle"- a light orangey/yellow. The room has a wonderful glow that changes over the course of the day.
Here's the before. Ewwwwww
And the after, including the curtains I designed from vintage souvenir silk scarves.
