The builders are having their first day in the house! I’m beyond excited. I will spend a lot of time, ripping off wallpaper, helping where I can. I also plan to make hearty lunches and cinnamon buns for these wonderful working builders.
I’ve fallen in love with the colours from Farrow & Ball, and we have picked out a few for our rooms. Not an easy process, but I think we got there in the end. With white dado rails and original skirting boards and coving it’ll look oh so lovely. We’ll put up ceiling roses too. Ah..
Bone no. 15 for the living room:
Stoney Ground no. 211 for the kitchen
Cream no. 44 for the main bedroom
Light Blue no. 22 for the guest room
Pavilion Grey no. 242 for the study
Here comes the before pictures! I will update you on the progress, and add new photos as we get further into this all-consuming process. This art nouveau fireplace reproduction is for sale if you’re in Cardiff and want to come pick it up. We’re replacing it with an effective and traditional woodburner.
