worked in two very different locations this month – one characterful and quirky with years of peeling wallpaper and the other mid century retro. location websites are great sources for design ideas – you get the choice of so many styles, all in one website. it does mean that i come home bombarded with ideas and constantly wanting to change my decor, i am just in the process of redecorating my bedroom, which has not been painted for over 15 years! so its back to paint colour charts again. we thought about stripping back the lining paper, but apparently this can lead to discovering lots of faults – i guess lining paper covers a multitude of sins, and if you strip back, you may have to replaster again – this can be costly. did you know that you can buy paint that mimics this old venetian plastering style?
