As you can see we've decided on wallpaper #3 - Krysantemer in the gray colorway. Most of you liked #1 & #5 the best. I like these too and I think they are definitely bedroom-y. However, I went with #3 because I loved the color palette - purple, periwinkle/gray, black and gold. The others, while lovely, seemed to easy and I wanted to push myself a bit.
Comet by Benjamin Moore which is the blue you can see on the walls in the pictures. I do like this but it is a bit too blue. A little more gray may be nice. Depending on my energy level I may try one more color or I may leave it with Comet. Comet seems to me to be the definition of a hyacinth blue - it is a rich periwinkle with some definite grape thrown in there.
Are you curious about the most expensive wallpaper? Most of you were right on! It was #2 - Rampura. Many of you noticed that it looked hand printed, which it was. Even the wood blocks used for the stamping were hand carved. When I went to order it I learned it was $250.00 a roll!! And I needed 2 rolls! CRAZY! Needless to say that was cost prohibitive.
Things do have a way of working out and I'm super satisfied with the one I chose. Thank you for your feedback on my post. It was a lot of fun to read your comments! I've updated my previous wallpaper post with the name and maker of each paper.
