um...of course my first instinct is to buy what you dream of. b/c i hate turning my back on my dreams. BUUUUT isn't this for your guest room? i mean, that WOULD be an appropriate place to buy something reasonable and splurge on something you perhaps would utilize on a daily basis. my tiny opinion.
you are right. but i am dying inside because i love that fabric and florals are not allowed in any room but the guest room. sighhhhhh. true life: if i buy something that expensive i am stuck with it FOREVER. cheap equals freedom to change that shit when i get tired of it. wow i am giving myself advice not necessary.
Of course, I like the expensive one. Especially with a gray paint color (maybe a little lighter than the one in the picture)!
I agree with Linds, you only live once my love!
I'm absolutely in love with the fabric with the red flowers. I'm actually curious where you found it. I would love to get some.
