    Watch a few episodes of 'Trading Spaces' on The Learning Channel, and you'll get enough ideas (good and bad) to finish your project. Last time I did room decorations (my last house before our new build), I did my daughter's room in blue solid floor to chair rail, white chair rails and trim, and pale yellow and white solid 6' stripes. Very subtle, very U of M! [img]/emoticons/thumbsup.gif[/img]

    I also painted my son's room sky blue with a green grassy hilly area below, and did little bug cartoons all over. He loved it!

    Kitchen was more subdued, pale green walls, with white trim and chair rails, and below the chair rails I did a rag-roll removal texture, with a really light green solid flat color covered by a dark olive green, and rolled towels over the wet dark paint to reveal the light green. Totally accidental (cheese cloth idea didn't work right), but looked killer!

      Hi djuki, welcome to the forum. I put paneling on my wall but I know that's not for everybody. Check out the websites for HGTV and The Discovery channel and This Old House. All those remodeling shows have websites and you can get some ideas there. Oh and if you do a multi color scheme get lots of that blue masking tape. The stuff is great.

      I love children but I don't think I could eat a whole one.

        If you have some cash you can get custom wallpaper printed. That could be fun. And definitely would be an original.

            murals are always fun if you are artistically inclined and don't have qualms about your carpets colours matching your walls colours

            Match in the gas tank, boom boom.

                  When I lived at my 'rents house I had a wall in panelling... I hated it so I bought 2 colours (pastel yellow and VERY light pastel green) then I painted each vertical gap in the panelling, one green, one yellow. It actually worked out good, the verticals wern't the same width so it was speratic.

                  I have also bought one roll of wallpaper border that I liked and cut out the images and scattered them... and inbetween some painted a sillouette of the same image (of different sizes) from the wallpaper. Looked really unique.

                  That's my 2 cents.

                  Don't dunk the cat in the water!

                    ..well i think i finaly got an idea..
                    ..since this is my work-room and chillout-room i decided to separate one from another and the colors are going to be diferent..
                    ..in my workspacethe walls are going to be in a bit darker color(not shure wich one yet) and on them i am going to draw some technical sketches (something like a blueprint since i am into techical drawing, maps...) and my chill area is going to be all light colors, mostly white walls and probably a b/w photo..something like that..
                    ..all coments are welcome..

                        Someone with a solvent base inkjet printer that'll print on vinyl or paper wallcovering.
                        I like the vinyl better cuz it doesn't stretch and shrink, making it easier to align long seams.
                        Borders would probably be done in lengths one over the other to maximize media so think about that when you design it.

                          what does that mean? lol kinda of like a tile BG? one lil section would be repeated throughout the whole border?

                            Just think of it as the border strips printed in sections and stacked up rather than as one long roll.
                            The media itself comes on a roll about 36' or 54' wide by whatever length. They will stack em into that 36' or 54' width to avoid waste.
                            You or they will have to trim them apart.
