I've been subjected to flowers in hallways that were decorated before me, and no matter how pretty they look on the page and how good they look at first, it isn't long before they're oppressive. Claustrophobic. You can hear the wallpaper and your shoulders go up every time you're there. The space seems barely wide enough to move in, and a stairway is already narrow, esp. there in the Olde Worlde.
Don't waste your money on something you'll soon hate. Use the other one. And think of the poor sod who's going to have to live in your place after you move out. Don't get the flowers.
