Someone once confided to me, that in their (admittedly elevated) opinion, there was simply no luxury in paint, and that was clearly the view held by the previous owners here too. The problem is, that although their choice of wall papers may be fussy, its good quality and wearing irritatingly well as a result.
Combine that fact with
house, I had made it yet another another reason to leave.
So finally, after seven years of living here, its goodbye fussy checked paper, hello 'soft white glow'. You see, it may be only a fresh coat of paint, but it feels suspiciously like a fresh start. Is that silly? And maybe it IS too much to ask of a lick of paint, but it's a helluva lot cheaper and less disruptive that moving house, and I think that definitely makes it worth a try.
