Papering the wall

As a fan of The Block I was excited to see that the gorgeous
 Katrina and Amie 
are going to use wallpaper in their main bedroom which will be revealed tonight.

It led me to thinking about my first decorating experience which, as a teenager, was choosing some wallpaper for a feature wall in my bedroom.

This was during the seventies.
 How exciting it was as my 'big' sister (some 7 years older than me) and I were trusted to go and choose the paper on our own!

We came back with something very similar to this....

although the colour was a much deeper turquoise.....

Yes we certainly had a great eye for design.....well we thought so!

It was approved by the lady of the house and poor old dad had to hang it!

That was how it was  done then.

Since having my own home I have hung a number of different wallpapers during the 80's & 90's and actually enjoy the experience....

Here are a few of my favourite recent finds

My how my taste has changed....

Wishing Katrina and Amie all the luck in the world..I know their rooms will look sensational..

Enjoy your week dear friends


  1. Oh, the second and the last photos are my favourites, Kym. The organiser in me is so attracted to the last one! J x

    Best wishes and happy week,
    Natasha @ 5 Minutes Just for Me.
