opinions wanted...

Ok ladies, I need some opinions/help. I am loving the framed wallpaper/fabric look right now (and my husband also likes it- yay!) and need your expert opinions on which direction I should take.


Here is our bedspread:



{from West Elm}


Now, as far as the pattern goes, should I stick with something basic but classic like this (can be in any color, I can't get enough of yellow right now):


Or have a little fun and go with bold patterns/colors:





{via fabric.com}

This may too girly for my husband, but I love it:



{via designyourwall.com}

It will be a fairly large piece of fabric being framed as shown in the last picture of my previous post. Or, if you have come across wall paper/fabric you think I should take a look at, please link it to me! Any advice is welcome really.

Thanks!

  2. I like the yellow or the blue one! The blue would obviously look great with the brown and white y'all are going for! Then again, the yellow would look very fresh against the white duvet cover! I'll keep my eyes peeled :)

  3. What a fun project, I love this idea! I think I would go with something bright and bold, but this is a inexpensive project (if you chose a fabric that is not crazy expensive that is) that you could switch it up when you get sick of one pattern, so get both!

  5. can't wait to see what you choose. I don't think you can go wrong as long as your hubby likes it too:)

  6. I love the yellow too- it's classic like you said, so you probably will continue to love it for a while.

  7. Oh wow- that is weird- I just bought the kissing pleat bedspread from Anthropologie and then saw this one at West Elm and Wesley and I are going to by this one instead- Great minds think alike- I love the wallpaper idea and may do it too, but dont know where to go for good wallpaper

  13. LOVE that bed spread! I almost bought it this weekend but I just KNOW my dog will get on it and scratch it all up. grrr..
    I love all of those patterns, but think the yellow is super fun, esp for the summer. You could always change it out for seasons. LOVE IT!

  16. If you're framing it large, I think bigger patterns look better so I vote for the second one. I think it'll come closest to giving you the effect of that yellow one your last post.
