tonic living

i've put the master bath off long enough. after ripping down all the green wallpaper the room has been sitting in disarray for a few months now. today i ordered some "tonic" fabric which the rest of the room will be loosely based on. instead of wallpaper i've been thinking about using vinyl wall art similar to the image below.

i came across this in my search yesterday. completely awesome and completely out of my price range. it's about $1200 a panel and consists of seven panels. there's a few others i found at velocity that are more in my budget. hopefully it's easier to handle than wallpaper. i've learned that job should be handled by the professionals.

This stuff is great, I have seen it first hand here at the office. And worse than putting up wall paper is taking it down after its been up 30 years. I used an industrial steamer and it still wouldn't come off, we ended up mudding over it and making new walls all together, what a pain in the ars.
