Think Big: Large Scale Wallpaper

I don't think I've ever actually uttered the words "go big or go home," but it feels appropriate for something requiring as much commitment as wallpaper. (Maybe "go big in your home" instead?)

While I appreciate a good smaller pattern, they often leave me feeling a little dizzy. So, when the day comes that I'm ready to invest the time and money in wallpaper, I literally want to do it in a big way. Large zebras à la Margot Tenenbaum? I'll take a room-full. Giant watercolor (really expensive) plants? Yes, please. If you don't want to go too bright, Image 4 shows a more neutral but still impactful style.
