Decorating & Furniture/slanted walls

Question
I have a bedroom with one wall slanted. I would like to know how I should arrange furniture and wallpaper the room. I am thinking of doing a real country theme by adding wainscoting with a nice light blue color.

Answer
Without room sizes/dimensions as well as knowing your furniture pieces, it's difficult to help you with placement.  

If you are set on wallpaper, treat the slanted wall differently by wallpapering the entire wall.  Likewise, if you opt to paint (which is infinitely more changeable later on) paint the slanted wall in an accent color.  

Chair-railing is best when used on straight walls, so avoid using it on the slanted one.  If you opt to paint and wallpaper (above/below the chair rail) on the rest of the walls, select either all wallpaper or all paint for the slanted wall.

Experience

College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
