I need your advice, about wallpaper. I don't normally 'do' wallpaper, in fact there's not a wallpapered wall in the house, so I don't pay much attention to it. But I'm thinking I might paper one wall of my new studio.
I'll just repeat that, in case it passed you by, my new studio! I know!! I can't quite believe it myself!!!
Because this house has the tiniest of attic spaces - if you tried to swing a cat up there you'd likely bang your elbows - it also has a tiny upstairs storeroom that's currently chocker with 'stuff'. But the stuff is to be moved out - into a storage unit nearby unless my mother comes up trumps and lets us use her empty loft - and I am moving in. The storeroom studio has a small south-facing window and I intend to paint three of the walls and the ceiling white, to maximise the light. But the fourth wall is in need of some tender loving care, having had various shelving units bolted to it at different times, and I think I'm going to go one better and dress it up. Nothing too bold, and certainly nothing that will create an obvious colour cast in the room as I shall be doing a fair bit of photography in there. Something with a fifties modern look perhaps, or the right kind of retro. And although there's not a vast amount of money for this revamp I should only need one or two rolls so can push the boat out a bit when it comes to cost. Any recommendations?
Or perhaps you could tell me what you think of the papers I've already stumbled across. Backgammon and Whitby from Mini Moderns are both really tempting, but which colourway? Or there's Little Green's Hepworth, in pearl or menthe? And Anthropologie's Flight Navigation, or would that be a tad overpowering?
I have no idea what I shall do for furniture, beg, borrow, and paint white with Annie Sloan chalk paint probably. I will need to keep all my yarn and knitting paraphernalia in there, my camera gear, and assorted arty-crafty bits and bobs. It's going to take a while to get it sorted but excitement has made me impatient, I don't want to wait!
Do you have a room of your own? Do you long for one? How would you fit it out? Do please tell.
