    I was thinking of getting this for a feature wall as I'm redecorating a room. Was wondering if it looks a little old fashioned or childish though just wanted opinions. Also if I paint the other 3 walls what colour would match do you think? I was thinking a very pale yellow but any other ideas ?

    It's perfectly fine but I would say that your room better be pretty bright. Otherwise a wallpaper as dark as that really just makes the room darker.

    I think it's cool but you could always just paper one wall and paint the rest I blue or another colour to make it look more grown up

    I was going to suggest brown/grey but that might be a bit dark for the whole room

    Maybe not yellow but since some of the wallpaper has white in it, you could go with white on the other walls? Sorry I'm not great at interior decorating lol

    I'd go for white, but pick out some green accessories to go with the green leaf colour on the wallpaper
