This is great!  I too prefer your colors, especially for the room. 

Do be careful of paper around electrical outlets.

maybe someone will find this useful:

-I manipulated several (tiny!) La Gerbe jpgs I could find online in Photoshop
-all jpgs were vectorized using VectorMagic -> svgs
-resized (no loss of quality) and then converted to pngs
-finally I used Posterazor to cut pngs so that they can be glued together as a poster -> pdfs (I believe I used a 6x10 page setup, but you choose any other scale; start with an svg, resize it, get a png, then make a pdf out of it)

then just glue all printed PDFs together in the right order and you'll end up with a huge "poster"which you can then use to cut out individual leaves. looks great! (I'm not too much of an artist and I wouldn't be able to get it done without this)

have a look what's inside, you'll probably need just a file or two (i.e. an svg or maybe a png directly). pack includes 9 svgs, 9 pngs and 9 pdfs
