Has anyone out there got this wallpaper? We opted for this in our living room, and with hindsight should perhaps have had it on one, not four walls. Have been searching for curtains to tone it down but can't find any I like. They need to be plain & not eyelet. Thanks if anyone can help!

My sister has it on one wall. I'm going there today, I'll have a look at what she's got. I love it but can see that it could be a bit overpowering

I had a look. My DSis has got her curtains in the willow fabric and the three walls other than the willow one in off white. Sorry, no help to you

What about just having neutral linen curtains

Some nice plants and adding in a pop of mid blue
Would help if you added a photo
I think you just need to add the right dressings and it will look fab!

I have the bedding which I use in a plain cream room and the cream definitely tones it down.

Have you come across Giles and Mary on gogglebox. They have wallpaper, upholstery and apparently off camera are matching curtains too! It looks rather fab to me - one option is to embrace it!

We have this wallpaper in the hallway on both walls, lightened up with white gloss woodwork and large inner door, it doesn't seem as overwhelming. I would go for plain green or cream curtains, I would have thought there'd be plenty about. Hopefully it'll settle in and you'll love it!

Not sure about curtains, but IMO you made the right choice doing 4 walls. These traditional papers look weird as a feature wall I think. I might be tempted to match the curtains as it looks quite bold a la Giles and Mary!

Thanks for replying. I've had no internet connection for days, so have only just read these smile.

Since I posted, I've come to love it! downwardfacingdog I agree! We have a huge fireplace & a window on one wall, a window and a front door on another wall, French doors to another room on another wall, and a door into the kitchen on the other wall, all of which tone it down, though at first it still seemed to much!

Justaweeone thanks for the link. Will have a good look at that!

Giles & Mary - yes, it does look good, they've certainly embraced it wink.
