FWIW I don't think anyone is proposing a very drastic change here like a 
change in concept, palette, style, etc. It does not appear to be a 
difficult prospect to swap in one of the wallpapers under consideration 
for the other in your designs; your integration of the wallpaper is 
visually just adding it as a backdrop.

I don't know if you have seen María's more recent version of the tiles 
wallpaper, but the two wallpapers are similar in design (one is a 
simpler and more regular rendering of tiles, the other is a more complex 
and less regular tiles rendering) and they share a palette and concept. 
If we decide to go with a different version of the mosaic tiles 
wallpaper at this point in the schedule, I don't think it would be as 
disruptive as you seem to think it would be.
