My goodness even after 7 years in my bathroom this paper takes my breath away every time I go in there. Soft soothing delicate pastels with a raised texture around the flowers and a slight sheen. It's a hundred times more beautiful in person than any photo I seen, so buying a sample to see it for yourself is well worth the cost. It has straight-across match from one side to the other which makes it super-simple to cut, and with a 10" drop there's almost no waste. I LOVE IT!
