In the entrance of my home, I wanted a pop/ a statement but still welcoming and calm (that room has a lot of natural light / windows). This is perfect. Everyday I go downstairs, the entrance is the first room I see, and this paper makes me smile. I have had quite a few complements on the pattern from visitors (my previous paper that was up did not get any compliments and the dark color irritated me daily). Of course color is so individual - so talk about function. Extremely easy to put up (1 person able), quality is outstanding.
