Those of you who know Higham may be familiar with the end of the Dining Room where tea and coffee and some food is served. It was blue for a long time, clashing with the rest of the Dining Room. So we decided to bring it into line and match it up. We chose a nice red terracotta for warmth (which also harmonises with the curtains) for below the dado rail. A heritage off-white for above the rail warms up the area and contrasts well. The dado itself has been repainted in glossy brown – it really is a nice feature.
As with other projects, we are using high-grade materials, as the building deserves it and we want a long lifespan. People are already commenting positively on the subtle changes we have been making, and it is nice to know these things are appreciated. All work we do is made possible by the income were receive from those who use the college, and we are always trying to make sure that we spend wisely and thoughtfully, befitting both the purpose and the heritage.
