On a Budget!
It seemed a shame to have half of the house looking so lovely and the rest tired and shabby. So I am gradually working my way around with a paintbrush smartening up the other rooms.
We had continued the grey flagstone floor tiles through from the new kitchen into the entrance hall, but with the creation of a new door and the ripping out of the old floor we were left with this.
I got a good 3 for 2 deal on some Dulux Nutmeg White paint which is a gorgeous chalky white and will last for upstairs as well. The woodwork is Trade Satinwood and the furniture is recycled from other rooms. It looks a touch pink in some lights and a touch grey in others! I love the colour and feel it is very Farrow and Ball like without the price. Sometimes shopping around pays off with paint colours, sometimes it doesn't! It is a really hard one to get right. I must admit to having a rather large basket of samples.
I plan to make a feature gallery wall of photos and pictures on the stairs side and I have some finishing touches like a back to the letterbox to fix yet. It seems a never ending job this house at the moment. I have now moved on to painting my eldest sons room who has ordered grey and lime green stripes .
