I must be getting old…

…but does this trendy new paint effect look a lot like rising damp to you?

Tonight I’m planning a quiet night in with an electric blanket and a sherry. You?

    AGREED! It looks cool and styled in this context – but I cant see this working in real life…

    It just looks unfinished & that shade of yellow – best seen on sunflowers but inside …. NO!

    Make mine a Thorntons chocolate liqueur :)

    To me it looks like a really neat kid painted the room, but couldnt paint any higher, so they’re waiting for someone to finish the top!

    Hello, although the yellow shade may be a bit strange and not the cup of tea for many, its one of the must -trend colours of Spring 2013 !!! Believe it or now actually the fashion industry calls it Lemon! Sound better I suppose! xxxx

    oh noooooo.

    We do actually have rising damp being dealt with at the moment so this makes me cringe!

    {said in best harumphing voice} just looks like she/he’s run out of yellow paint and/or couldn’t be bothered to buy a ladder to do the rest of the room…. {mine’s a horlicks, please}

    I think perhaps in the right space and with the right colours it could work. maybe it is the grey?

    Ha! That’s hilarious. I have a bit of a problem with that shade of yellow. For a while lots of people were wearing tights that colour and every time I saw it, it reminded me of jaundice.
