which wallpaper?

We would really love your help with this one please! For ages now we have been undecided about which of these two wallpapers to go with for our hall & stairway (just up the one wall)....



I have always loved the Wistaria as the print looks great falling down a big expanse of wall....but then the Saplings one is sooo cute & retro! HELP! Cast your vote on the poll at the top right of the page. I know it's very subjective but let's see which is the favourite amongst you all & we'll reveal our chosen one soon!

i think the saplings has a much more modern feel to it
i think the top one could be a little old ladyish...not that theres anything wrong with little old ladyish, in fact i love little old ladyish...but in terms of wallpaper i love this sapling one...that motif is one i like to put into my own work so i might just be getting some of that myself..

the first one... I think the second one would be wayy too loud. The first one is beautiful, and eclectic.

ok this is a hard one. I like the saplings but fear I would tire of the bright yellow? I like the wistaria and it could look great with slick modern fittings which may stop it from looking too dated. Are you able to post a pic of the area?

I was humming and hawing about the saplings as you know : ) I got my sample in the post yesterday and after having it up on the wall for a while I've fallen out of love I'm afraid. The white isn't strong enough and the yellow is too dark for my room. But if you have a nice bright hall it could be lovely.

Depends on what you want to say Sapling is fun retro but the Wistaria is a little bit more elegant retro. Best of luck.
ps what paste would you recommend?
and technique

This is hard Sharon but I opted for the Saplings because I think that bright cheery yellow and the fun retro print would cheer me up every time I passed it. Looking forward to finding out which one you guys pluck for. Aren't you quern posh with your fancy poll too - as us Wexford ladies would say in our oh-so-dolcid tones! Oh and thanks for your lovely comment on my blog yesterday xx
