Peeling paint in one room?

Had a painter and decorating company come to paint the whole house in November. We have noticed in last two weeks that the paint is starting to peel quite badly in a couple of places under the coving... no leaks, moisture or damp, house is only 7 years old. There was already a coat of magnolia beneath it that wasn't peeling at all before new colour put on. Any ideas what it could be?

The paint used was not compatible with the coating underneath, painter if in any doubt should have applied base coat before top one

Yes, easy! Before the house to be painted, they supposed to get a nice rubbing down so the fresh paint sticks better. Two coats of paint and that's it, job done!

If paint peels from an interior wall, the reason for the peeling paint is often an improperly prepared surface and moisture seeping through from the wall to the paint surface Wipe off the wall . Apply the primer to the wall first to seal the wall and prevent moisture or peeling problems.

Could be just the caulk this can happen if it was painted before it was fully dry as it shrinks slightly

Yes the paint they have applied is a stronger base so this will eventually attack the old paint if it wasn't prep right or had the right amount of under coat you could solve this by simply sanding down lightly and re coat the wall with matching paint hope this helps Ur query
