I was happy that pulling off the old paper didn't pull half the plaster away with it as well, as has happened in a couple of other places. We've (yes the royal 'we' again) papered in the two alcoves either side of the chimney breast, but just painted the other walls - I like plain painted walls with just a single wall or feature papered, I think you can introduce more colour and pattern and accessorize better with pictures, furnishings etc. when you've got plain walls.
Here's my lovely big splash of colour on the end wall:-
We just need to get a shelf now to go on the papered brick alcove wall above the TV....it's for books, just a few reference and favourite novels, I don't keep massive amounts of books now like I used to.
The other end wall beside the door, with the gorgeous red poppy metal artwork I bought, I just love it:-
Here's a closer look at the poppy artwork:-
I also really like the clock we put above the computer, it has a nice loud tick, I love hearing a clock ticking....although not in the bedroom!
As always, the photos are a bit washed out, the colours are brighter in real life. The carpet is red, navy and cream stripes and we have plain pillar box red curtains. It all looks quite grown up!
