Better not sneeze :cry:

Did a faux finish muli-tone room  - then re-painted after a few years - pattern showed through - had to sand smooth.

Well, for those that really like wallpaper, this is probably a better answer for the Phils.  I think using traditional paper you'd have moisture issues as well as critters eating the paste.  If you do this with washable paints it should be good for a few years until you get tired of it.  Then sand or plaster over it and repaint for a fresh look.  

Had a house in Ohio where the son of the guy we bought it from was a HS wrestling star and dreamed of a scholarship to Notre Dame which he got.  He'd done his bedroom flicking globs of blue, green, and gold paint onto the white walls.  I tried scraping and sanding for days but gave up and had a drywaller wipe a layer of mud over it and done in about half an hour.

Thinking about sanding walls / paint -  anyone remember 'popcorn' ceilings?

Yeah, was popular a long time.  Now stamped plaster seems the thing in the US anyway.image.thumb.png.762de280cff8912db33a640baecd6f7d.png

At least that can easily be skim coated? - popcorn was scrape / sand / skim - 150 Sqm :killself:

I think it would be easier to scrape a popcorn ceiling than a stamped ceiling.  The popcorn had a slight acoustic value.

Backlit false ceilings are now popular.

And then there's 3D flooring.

Mine was put on when it first because popular and adhered to the plasterboard so strongly it took the paper off in large swaths.
