    I also hate all white - it looks so 'cold.' I have an apartment and added a strip of wall paper at the top of the walls and painted a 1" strip around the cupboards doors and drawers with assorted pastel colors using a metal scrubber (gives a lacy look) and black door knobs. Then I added removable stick-ons (used horses as I couldn't find the butterflies I wanted). Added a lot of character without a lot of time.

    A GAL AFTER MY OWN HEART. I LOVE WALLPAPER & HAVE RESORTED TO IT MANY TIMES--JUST EVEN ONE FEATURE WALL. THE WALLS IN OUR OLD HOUSE HAVE MANY DEFECTS--WALLPAPER COVERS A MULTITUDE OF SINS & LOOKS CLASSY. I ADDED BUTTERFLY STENCILS TO MY BATHROOM CLOSET DOOR TO TIE IN WITH THE ONE WALL COLOR. LOVE IT.
