    all over -all round

    Hi!
    I'd like to know wether there is difference between "all round my room" and "all over my room".
    Besides Can I put the preposition "in" and say all round in my room?
    Thanks.

    It all depends on what you want to say:

    There were posters all round my room
    My sisters put the pictures all round my room
    I chased the mouse all round my room



    I like to have good lighting all over my room
    The coca cola sprayed all over my room
    I chased the mouse all over my room

    The insertion of "in" changes the structure of the sentence:

    The mess was [all over] [in my room] = All my clothes, books and cds were scattered everywhere[in my room].
