Deciding on my Dining Room

The only room in our house that I have yet to re-do is our dining room.  I'm not sure why I haven't tackled it yet;  maybe it is because it's the one room that is a little like grand central.  It's where we eat, pay bills, ichat, do crafts, entertain and do home improvement projects.  I would really like to tackle it before we move (hopefully, in the next year).  My husband is not a big fan because it would mean taking down the existing wallpaper and either replacing it with new wallpaper or painting.  There are a couple of more issues, but I won't bore you with the details.  In the meantime, I have an itch to do something.  What I really want to do is to tear down that wallpaper.  But, I need to come up with a plan first.  If we paint, I am leaning towards a neutral palette of brown, white and pops of granny smith apple green.  If we wallpaper, I'm at a lost - I think it'll be more bright and colorful just because there are so many beautiful wallpapers out there.   Here are some of my inspirational pictures.
