As mentioned before, we have been keen to sympathetically redecorate our rooms bit by bit. We have recently had bedroom 19 redone. After converting this ensuite room into a single (rather than a small double) and having Simon our carpenter make oak veneered furniture and headboard for us for the now new single bed, we needed to re-decorate.
This we have done with heritage paints, based upon harmonising colours with a delightful eau de nil (does that really mean ‘Nile water’?) shaded window blind showing the Strawberry Thief design by William Morris.
- Colour for ceiling and woodwork: All White
- Colour for feature wall: Matchstick
- Colour for other walls: Wimbourne White
As we have been attempting to do, the room is now functional, easy to clean and fresh, but feel a part of the building with its heritage colours and tasteful appointment.
Just the carpet to sort – and we’ll get round to that eventually!
