I actually have samples of the cream and orange out in the Shasta right now. I like the cream, but I don't think it will be the right look. We plan to not paint most of the birch so I want something colorfulful for the table and counter.
We installed the creme lacquered linen in our 57 Westerner. It looks great. Plus, we ordered from Lowe's and they also sell smaller sheets (30x96). Cost was around $40. More than enough material for the countertop and dinette table.
When we did Hamlet (6 years or so ago), these weren't available, but we used a nice yellow linen print. It looks a lot like the cream one as far as the pattern goes, except it's brighter. Nice to see the retro designs.

I received the Formica samples today.
I don't like the linen pattern in person, it looks like a photo and it's nothing like the original linen formica in our ham. I like the red bubbles and the dog bone patterns. It will be interesting to compare the Wilsonart linen-like pattern to the Formica one, side by side. They haven't arrived yet.
The original looks like a mix of colors rather than a photo transfer:

I like green too.
This green pattern is on the counter in the Starfire. I like it but it doesn't harmonize with the seating.
I'm thinking the Starfire will have a red and cream color scheme to go with the original red and cream cattle brand embossed seating. I'm leaning towards a light colored formica for the table and counter/back splash and a red swirl linoleum for the flooring. I need to order the linoleum samples too but first I need to find them...
