    Hmmmm what are your walls like? Are they good enough to paint or would you need to paper them? (it's really pretty btw)

    Okies you see I was thinking (depending on your furniture) either stick with plain white or a dove white (white with a touch or grey). Just a thought but if you do want to do the whole room then you could get some big mirrors in plain while or silver frames. That might help to break it up a bit?

    Are you doing a feature wall?? (paper it) & then paint the other three walls, i think the black wallpaper for a feature wall then do the other 3 a in white, Just a suggestion as i know some people are not too keen on black, but i think it's nice just on the one wall :)

    i like dark colors so i think black walls will really darken it but if you put the walpaper on the right wal the light will contrast off it making it look bigger. (60 minute make over freak here hehe)

    you could try offish grey whitey thing

    NOT silver your not some space thing lol

    or black with a silver skirtin and top border.

    sorry to be nosey but were did you get that wallpaper from? i would like something like that but with red on for my living room.

    I agree dark colours will make your room darker, but also i agree if it is put on the right wall it can look really good, also using mirrors will help it look alot bigger. Have u seen the smaller circle mirrors just for decoration?? I think feature walls are good though :)

    Also 2 walls 1 colour & the other 2 a different colour :)

    I'd be tempted just to do one wall with that paper and the other 3 in a light grey. You can then use more of the patterned wall paper as pictures on the plain walls to tie it all in.
