I used the Anya stripe as a border and it really made the room come alive. The room was already brown and "yellow", so that is what attracted me to the border in the first place. The dark aquamarine color was a bonus. I was able to add a few accessories such as blue pillows to match the blue in the border and the room was instantly transformed. The difference is astonishing and many people comment! It's a great product which makes for endless ideas!
