I work for Sherwin-Williams, and in my store we have a wallpaper library. This pattern was featured in our HGTV book, and I looked at it nearly everyday for a month. I was entranced by it, but never ordered any, because everyone I showed it to told me it was horrible. Finally, I said "screw it, I know what I like", and I ordered three double rolls. I did an accent wall behind my desk at home, and it is the best design decision I have ever made. It is such a beautiful pattern (the website does not do the color justice - I ordered the green colorway). It's bold, it's interesting, but it's not overpowering. My desk, books and decor aren't swamped by the pattern. It recedes just enough into the background to be both surprising and unobtrusive. If you're like me, and you're on the fence about a pattern, but just keep coming back to it - ORDER IT! Listen to your gut, you know what you like. Everyone who visits my home compliments this pattern. They're always surprised by how cool wallpaper can be.
