Hi all

any ideas?

i have one totally blank wall and some wall space behind a desk.

on the blank wall id love some old school DEC style reel to reel units and either book library shelves or star wars wallpaper behind the monitors.

but I'm out of ideas!

whatever is it it'll be there for the next 20 years+ but i have no restrictions!

please help!

thanks
rob.

Hi Rob,

You could paint your own design on the wall if you have some artistic flare. Or print a large Muriel across multiple pages and collage them into place.

thought about going ironically retro? google retro wallpaper, in uk there's a surprising 70's range. Mostly orange. ive persuaded the wife to let me decorate the office!

ill have a look! i do like the 70s big orange/greens and the red lines tech style 80s paper.... would like a large image print tho. think that would be costly tho. i have started a thread in the photo booth section on the room build up.

I went with a giant Avengers mural to keep the kids happy.... was a nightmare to apply as I'm a bit OCD and making sure there are no bubbles in a sheet this size was tedious :) It goes right back behind the arcade machine (24ft x 9ft) but a lot of it is now covered as the beige boxes grow in numbers lol :)

sounds tricky - always loved this room.... slightly bigger than my space tho!
