wishlist: birch tree wallpaper

in my dream home my bedroom will have one wall, the wall the my bed is up against, with birch tree wallpaper. then i'd paint the other three walls a complementary grey. i just love the way it would look, like a forest behind my bed.

I love the birch wall paper idea. I have just purchased the Tate bed from Crate Barrel - I'm having it covered in white leather. What would you do for bedding, rugs and lights with this combination? Any ideas would be helpful. I can't pay a designer anymore...so I'm on my own. I was going to do a grey grasscloth on the wall but I think this paper would make a statement and because the home sits next to the lake, it would be really nice. Thanks for your thuoghts.

gosh, i'm no interior designer... but i would try to keep the colors monochromatic (black grey & white) & maybe, just maybe include one other color, probably something dark like navy blue, or perhaps some light colored wood. for bedding i would probably go with a simple grey or navy blue comforter, a black shaggy rug & a nice white pendant light (something like the last one in this post: http://hellooutlaw.blogspot.com/2008/06/lighting.html). but honestly, play with things & see what works best for you. the tate bed with white leather sounds so sweet. perhaps you could send me some pictures of your progress, i'd love to see what creative direction you take. by the way - you're so lucky to live in a house near a lake!

The birch tree wallpaper is available from Anthropologie... but expensive!
