Standing at the start of hallway looking down, with window on left, door at the end, smaller door on right for cupboard and another bedroom door coming up on the right side. Hall is roughly 4.100 long x 0.900 wide x 2.400m drop.

Door arrangements.

Where would you start?
My concern is when you are looking down the hall, I would like the pattern to flow around all 3 sides as the eyes will always be looking at the end of the hall - and if - the pattern is cut to fit around corners, it may not match and look darf......

Start above the end door in the middle then go either way back down the hall - but that goes against "working away from your light" for half the project until you pass the

To each his, , That wall paper would drive me crazy. However, I would start at the at the front of the photo nearest your view. The pattern will blend in as an overall view. The cutouts for the doors and entrance ways are so small you won't notice and mis-match.

If it was me I would paint and maybe use a few pictures or decals to break up the plain look.
