Thanks Lori for your comment on Terrazzo, I appreciate your opinion. It's so difficult to choose and I just don't know, because the design attracted a lot of interest before I offered an alternative option and now the polling is looking like people think blue is best and maybe it's more conservative and 'manly' but I still like the terracotta tones more. Ah well, I will run the poll for longer and take a view later. Have a lovely day :)
