My bedroom is 3.9m x 2.6m. I've got my bed at one end of the room (smallest wall) and a wardrobe and dressing table on the opposite wall with the door next to the dressing table.

I've stripped off the wallpaper that was there and will be putting some more up as the walls aren't great.

I'm thinking of a pattern wallpaper behind the bed and then wallpaper which I will paint on the other 3 walls.

I've got about 6 samples so far and, whilst they're OK, none of them are great.

Any ideas? As the room is quite small I don't want it too dark. Previous owners had black and grey wallpaper on all the walls and it was very dark.

What sort of thing were you looking for?

Some that I have been looking at (in the ublikely event my house ever sells and I get to move) are -

If floral isn't your thing then these are probably no good though! Are you looking for modern, traditional, bold, neutral?

Don't bother with wallpaper. Why not try painting off white then have an accent colour on one wall? Have you space for bedside tables? If so, have lamps and hang mirrors behind the lamps on the tables to reflect more light (Internet idea!)

The wallpaper I've looked at have been floral which I haven't really taken to. The bed is in the centre with bedside table at each side so like the idea of mirrors.

Just been looking at and like this:

Also this colour is nice. Possibly with this on the wall behind the bed and cream in the rest of the room?

I like this as well:

And finally what do you think of this:

All lovely but I prefer the second one for colour as you can easily reprint if you don't like but harder to change wallpaper!
