Not so keen on this one. Looks original to the house but I don't think it's a Handicraft one. To me, it just does't live up to the other papers in the house. Maybe it will grow on me!

I like it too, because it's subtle, and as Julie says, it won't be fighting the furniture and the pictures, they will be the stars. Whereas I would have trouble putting anything in front of the other rooms' papers, they're so gorgeous, I wouldn't want to cover any of them up!

It looks original but the papered card method works well if you don't like it!

Delightful house.
Love the exterior colours and the wallpapers.
As Julie says, if you don't like this paper use one you do like.
If you paper thin card then you wont ruin this paper.

All the internal papers are so bright, it looks as though this house has hardly been exposed to daylight at all.

Cover it up if you don't like it! Get a lovely period paper you do like. If it's stiff enough on its own, it will hold up without being stuck to this (probable) original paper. If your choice is a bit more flimsy, stick it to thin card for some support.

It might look very different though when the room is furnished and there are pictures on the walls. This would be a very good background for miniature works of art - they won't be fighting it!

It is all so colourfull, what a pleasure to own such a nice house. Even the fretwork looks good.
