    thanks rms,
    i think i was a little lucky in that the edges must have been fairly true so not too much manipulation of the paper required and although its not perfect i think it looks better than if i had done it in more than one piece
    thanks again to everyone for the comments and suggestions

    no mater what i say the job has been done to your liking and at the end of the day that's what matters. nothing better than walking away happy with a feeling of satisfaction from a job well done!

    nice paper by the way! ;)

    When you offer a reply with a quote and a band of Smillies, it is often good practice to offer them in an equal number. You see otherwise, they can tend to be rather confusing, reminds me somewhat of the advice of which you offer.

    personally i would have also done it in one piece as two would not have looked as good and you would see the join across the whole wall.
    elrobbbo please stick to topic and stop trying to cause arguements and wind people up.
    Thanks

    Having now seen the photos I think maybe three pieces would have been suitable. Elrobbo82 has a point.

    The part which I thought was a curve appears quite a definite angle.

    Without actually seeing the job it is of course very hard to judge.

    I would have done the very top right angle bit in one piece, as I have mentioned.

    I can't help thinking where the curve is there is a definite angle to join two pieces of paper.

    With all these angles the paper can tend to run downhill (or uphill) if you do it one piece.
    Also slightly out of true corners can cause spots where there simply isn't enough slack in the paper to stick in firmly to the wall, so you get a bulge with a hollow behind it.

    Another problem with papering into corners all the time is that sometimes over time the paper contracts and leaves an unsightly ripple or bulge.

    That said, the finished photo appears to show a reasonable job, and the pattern at the top at least looks level.

    By doing this wall in three you have a better chance of the pattern being level with the adjacent walls at the very top and below the 'curve'.
