Walls Plain and Fancy

We faced a number of decorating decisions with the lake house. Painted walls were simple once I decided to go along with Frank's preference and repaint them white. (This was a no-brainer with the pink walls, but I didn't mind the deep rose, yellow, blue and brown walls and would have left them alone. White, of course, is less likely to prove objectionable to potential tenants.)

However, wallpaper turned out to be tough to remove and time-consuming to paint over. So some of them are still papered.

The master bath has a couple of walls papered in a bright rose pattern. One potential tenant inquired if we would paint over it, but they never filled out an application so we have not bothered to paint it yet. It's an option.
