Readers, I need your opinion. My husband and I are preparing to remove the psychedelic silver foil wallpaper in one of our bathrooms. We have intended to tear out the wallpaper since the day we bought the house. However, now that it's time, I'm feeling uncertain about it. I would like some input from you. Should we tear out the wallpaper?
This wallpaper was put in the bathroom in the early '70s. It's silver foil with groovy pink and white swirls. Although it's nearly 40 years old, it's in excellent condition. Should we keep the wallpaper because it's cool and unusual?
Or, should it go because it doesn't match the '50s design in the rest of the house? Does the loud design compete too much with the bold atomic pattern in the barkcloth curtains? Is that a good enough reason to tear it out?
So, tell me what you think. Should the wallpaper stay or go?
