Before and after, flowers or stripes?

So, we finished (mostly) painting our kitchen. A few touch-ups remain, but it's looking good, if I do say so myself. Drastically different from the bland white walls we've lived with since we moved in 9 months ago. Here is before:

And here's after:

Now, here's the burning question - I have reversable curtains (thank you Wal-Mart!). Which should I put up with the new paint color - the flowers (above) or the stripes (below)?

Here's a close-up of both:


I the pictures, the flowers (IMO) look better - but in real life, the stripes look a bit better. What do you think?

As if I - and you! - have nothing better to do than obsess over curtains! Must go get to schoolwork! More soon....

I *love* it! The room looks great! Since I'm looking at the pictures on the computer, I'd say the flowers, but if you think the stripes look better IRL then go with that. :)

I like the stripes better because there appears to be a bit more red in them, which contrasts nicely with the green.

Although I'm decorating-challenged, so here's your great big grain of salt with that.

Well, I did like the stripes slightly better - but all the men in my life liked the flowers better, which I find just adorable. So flowers it is! :-)

I love the kitchen! The color is great. I like the stripes too, but the flowers were nice as well. [Good choice to make the guys happy LOL!]

I have to place my vote for the stripes. Although I come here with a bias because I must admit that I have never been partial to floral prints:)

Your kitchen looks great! I love the paint job and I'm especially jealous of the trees you can see out of your window!
