Large Patterned Wallpaper

I'm ready to put a large pattern on the walls.  I always love a big bold pattern on furniture, floors and walls, but I have not had the balls to put it on my own furniture, floors and walls.  I've been threatening to paper my entryway or kitchen for some time.  Remember this?  Oh, and this? My entry is small, which would keep my cost down, and would have a big impact since its the first thing you see upon entering my home.  Here are some inspiring photos - "spurs to prick the sides of my intent" as Mr. Shakespeare says.

I wish I could find a way to give my walls one big Henna tattoo.  Are there any henna-like wallpapers out there?  If you, dear readers, know of any - pass it on!

I love the idea of the henna paper. Maybe you could do a stencil instead? Would be more time consuming but cheaper and easier to change later. Either way, just go for it!

Oh I LOVE a bold printed wallpaper!!! Great inspirtation shots and I think Brandi's idea of a stencil is a great one and I'll put my thinking cap on and try to come up with a wallpaper that looks like Hena:)

I love the paper from the House of Turquoise ! The slightly Art Nouveau style of it .. my husband would run screaming from the room - he hates all wall paper.
Childhood wallpaper trauma, obviously.

I also adore these large patterned papers - am considering them for 2 bathrooms. The stencil is a great idea but I don't have the patience and am not terribly crafty. I recently read 2 blog pieces about large scale stenciling - one was I believe designsponge and I don't remember the other but it was the Kelly Wearstler Imperial Trellis design.
