    i would paper the wall and curve in one piece and paper the "was ceiling" to the ceiling in another piece and match the pattern.

    No probs. i'm sure you'll be fine.

    Others may disagree but this would be my personal preference.

    you might find that if you do it in one piece the curve might pull the pattern out when you go round the external corner. if you do it in two you have more play with pattern. keep us posted and let us know how it goes.

    good luck

    The op is fully aware of that and is clearly prepared to work with it in order to achieve a better finish.

    is this why advice has been asked?

    if the op was applying a blown vinyl and painting there would be more scope for making it fit in one piece. as this is a vinyl pattern i am concerned that the curve will make the papers joins separate when going round the external. with a finished paper you can not hide these.

    elrobbo, continue your arguing with the op then and see if you can convince them otherwise. I'm not rising to you and ending up with the same fate as starspark.

    I feel you just come on this forum to disrupt it. Thats my posting on this topic over.

    Depending on the paper, pattern, thickness, match etc, you may have to do it in three.
    Was ceiling, slope and wall.

    billozz,

    Like the paper.

    Looks like a good job done. Sometimes you have to take chances to produce a good job as can be reflected in your work, regardless of what other people say.

    Well done.

    Sounds like someones chucked his toys out the pram, Maybe I cheer him up with a tin of zinsser 123 ;)

    It is indeed a job well done, although it can often depend on type and thickness of a wallpaper, most, when, after soaking will easily take angles with ease.
