monitors size? pic of my room inside

So i've been mixing on headphones and i really feel the need of buying a pair of monitors but since my room is small i don't know if 6.5" would be good for me. I'm excited about the focal alpha 65, they are expensive here on this side of the earth but i want a good pair of monitors, need them to last many years.

Here's a pic of how my room looks now
i'm not allowed to use IMG tags yet

no floor mat, no curtain, just solid walls everywhere. Also would like to know if it's better to use wooden curtains or just go with fabric curtains.. i'm not really sure about it!

thanks in advance guys

Probably not, depending on the type of music you mix. If it is just cowbells, cymbals, an castanets, you'd probably be fine with a tiny speaker, but if you want to mix for things like drums, keyboards, bass, electric, acoustic guitars, etc., then you definitely need a larger speaker, or perhaps smaller ones with a couple of large sub woofers to fill in the low end.

Room size has no bearing at all on speaker size. That's a common myth, but totally wrong. Your choice of speaker frequency range depends on thing only: your music. Room size is irrelevant to that.

Adding to @ Soundman2020 : For bass frequencies, I think bigger drivers on average will have less distortion at the same level as smaller drivers.
