Our front room had dry lining that was wallpapered. What we weren't expecting (once we had removed the dry lining) was to find another 3 layers (and evidence of more) on the walls under the lining. Unfortunately, I was in "doing stuff frenzy" mode when I was working on the front room, so the removal of wallpaper wasn't as systematically archaeological as it could have been.
These are, however, the wallpapers we have:
The dry lining
Luckily, when we bought our house, although it had wallpaper, none of the rooms had wallpaper across the ceiling. This is something I have only seen in France, and is usually done with psychedelic floral prints from the 1980s - up one wall, across the ceiling, and down the other side.
We will not be papering at all. The walls will be drylined with plasterboard and limewashed. We will be attempting to do taste...........
