i think they have to have run out of good enough houses

my mils Ideal Homes just seem to be full of very average semis with MFI kitchens

when dh (ponce) bought Living Etc it was just gay guys with La Corbusier chairs

Twig - when I go to book group all the houses look identical - it makes me laugh !

I don't know

not Laurence Llewellyn Bowen that's for sure

is it time for wallpaper of various hues to make a return do we think?

(will admit to having oak and almond whites and black granite dull-stuff too)

God, I don't give a monkeys. I just wish they all weren't so horrendously expensive.

hmm quite like wallpaper but our house is too small it would be overpowered. I am thinking of having a dreaded "feature" wall in the bedroom with wallpaper.

We have to be fairly neutal because our house is so tiny but we are tending to go for soft duck egg and greeny colours as I do get bored with cream and white.

I quite like the "shabby chic" look but even that is becoming very popular now.

my house is different to the ones in the property pages all shabby and no chic yet, no feature walls in some rooms we actually need to build walls

we have a very unusual design, not often featured in property mags - its magnolia avec weetabix for the dining room, burnt orange avec random felt tip scribblings in the lounge. If we ever sell up, I'll make sure those things feature heavily!
