Don’t use a sprayer unless you’re very experienced…. you will regret it.
Don’t go for unbranded paint as if you do, it’ll show.
Are the walls plastered? Is the plaster in good nick? If not, some filling and sanding will make the end product look better.
If you can’t ‘ cut in’ well, it’s probably better to use the same colour on ceilings, walls and woodwork; otherwise it will look dodgy, albeit clean.
Buy decent brushes, otherwise you’ll spend a lot of time picking bristles out of the applied paint. I agree with Orangehorse, a roller works best, leaves a subtle texture and masks slight flaws if there are any on your surface area.
Good luck!
