Wallpaper rehab

I mean, how many walls do I think I have? I should try to cure myself of this wallpaper hoarding by papering my flat with all of it.

Ok now, like a memory test… from left to right: Osborne & Little, Folie; Osborne & Little, Maharani; Arthouse, Radiance; Osborne & Little, Boheme, again; Neisha Crossland, Sea Thistle; Cole & Son, Cow Parsley; literally dunno what this is; B&Q, Cocktail; Cow Parsley again.

Alas, I barely have room for any of it – I’m going with Cow Parsley in my not-very sunny kitchen, pale mint Boheme in my bedroom, and something that isn’t even here for the living room. If I never had to let anyone into my house again I’d put Cole & Son blue Palm Leaves in the bathroom and the Sea Thistle in the hall, but it’d be the wallpaper equivalent of tattooing your face. Just a bit too much.
