Looks like a good portion of homes in New Orleans, mine included. Most of my walls still have their original blue casein paint that's over a hundred years old and other walls have no paint because they were wallpapered their whole lives, an I scraped it down to the original warm grey plaster. I think if your walls have enough character you barely need anything in a room to make it feel interesting, plus we don't mind the age of things." La beauté de l'entropie ". But yeah, plenty of tourists I've meet speak of wishing everything was freshly painted an new looking. Unfortunately 60 percent of housing stock here is at or over a hundred years old. And 25 percent is closer or over 200 years old.

Photographing any space really does help, I think it focuses your view and helps to make you think in terms of the composition of that view. I suggest taking pictures of your house pretending it was going to be in apartment therapy, go back and look through them on your computer. You will see the changes that need to be made. Both in the process of taking and thinking about your composition but also when you are looking back through the photos trying to decide what to "submit" as the best. On the plus side you will end up with really great "before" photos to show your progress.
