Help Please

I appreciate the wonderfully talented folks who check out my beginner blog. Now, I would like to ask for your help.  The room I am currently working on belongs to the daughter of the Judge & Gibbet.  She likes to "dabble" in darkness.

Now, imagine that the hutches are hanging from the wall and are filled with jars of organs and other items of interest to the young lady.  There will be a large number of plants and vines, and perhaps a few birds in the vines and lots of random books on herbalism and nature.  The table will be covered with a variety of items as well....potions, plant cuttings and other current projects. (Plus maybe a finger or two)

Now for my problem.  This room will have a nature-like feel, but I am not sure if the wallpaper on the left is too "homey".  I love the print with the small brown birds and I think it would balance with the horror inside the cabinets.  But I also like the plain look of the wallpaper on the right.

Or maybe just stick with weathered white paneling......?

If anyone has an opinion, can you please be honest and let me know what you think?

Thanks for your help, Friends!

 I still have a few major items to work on in the downstairs kitchen of the pub, but I hate it when things look too clean.  For fun, I tried my hand at a sprouting potato made from Femo. I think it looks fun next to the messed up door frame.  I also spilled a bit of "salt" on the work table where the cook is putting together some bean salad.  I was pretty happy with how the salt and pepper shakers came out.  I made the tops by very carefully placing one drop of silver paint on top of the two tiny plastic lids.
