Definitely colourful and lots of plants.

Do you think tarzan lives there?

The bathroom made me go dizzy! I had such high hopes from the outside.

the bathroom grin

What are those transfers?? In the kitchen and then used again in the bedroom!! I do like the colours in the study, though blush

It looks like my SIL's house!
She had a glass front door and I swear you could see a green glow in the porch from the lime green wallpaper in the hall.

It looks a lot like my friend's house. She's always changing things and I always have to compose my face before I pronounce my verdict : usually "wow, this must have taken you ages!"

I see one giraffe in the living room just wasn't enough...

Love the garden

The garden is lovely, both front and back, that's what drew me too it.

What's with all the offset things on the wall?
I'm all for colour and being bold, but sadly I don't think the person who decorated this house as has any idea what colours compliment one another.
The sitting room in blue and yellow works the best....the other rooms don't work at all.

I was about to say well it's just paint and then I saw the diamond shapes grin Hope they come off!

We got our house because it was painted all sorts of weird colours and apparently no one else could see past that.

pictish Sat 03-May-14 22:44:16

Yes...the diamond shapes are somewhat of a theme aren't they?
Must've liked them.

Like shoe our last house was like an episode of changing rooms gone wrong. Just bought a shed load of magnolia and painted it all. Then gradually did one room properly at a time.

That look was so popular when we bought our first house 16 years ago, back when chancing rooms reigned supreme.

Remember rag rolling? I never did it myself, but I saw a few attempts at it in other people's houses. Never looked anything less than a right mess.

pictish Sat 03-May-14 23:23:51

Dotto stencilling.

Our house was ridiculously cheap for our overpriced area - at least £100k cheaper than others of same size and location. The reasons? Dirty, front garden fence kicked down, cluttered, period features ripped out. And the decor! Living room and all through the hallways: dark fluorescent orange, a colour I have never seen on any commercial paint chart. Kitchen: yellow (including ceiling) with scarlet woodwork. Bedrooms: purple. Lots and lots of orange pine.

But it only took a couple of thousand pounds to put that lot right. I'm so grateful most people struggle to 'see' a house beyond the immediate decor.

Devora Sat 03-May-14 23:33:37

I'm proud to say I hated rag rolling at the time. And stencilling. And sponging. What was her name - Jocasta something - who made her fortune telling people 50 different ways to paint-effect your walls.

JustPassingThru Sat 03-May-14 23:59:44

Disappointed in the kitchen ... it's so restrained! But hey, it's nothing a job lot of paint won't fix.

Lovely garden, both front and back.

You know what, while so many colours at once are not for me, it makes change from all the beige/blah houses around, and not all, seemingly, made so to be sold.

samsam123 Sun 04-May-14 21:52:31

Hey whats wrong with my house at least its not boring white and my plants are lovely -some people have no taste

I love that house in Reading except for the stickers they have added to the walls. I'm feeling inspired smile
