Grey has definitely replaced magnolia as a neutral default colour that goes with everything. And rightly so, it's clean and classy! The Dulux Polished Pebbles used in this lovely Victorian bedroom has brighten it up and added a sophisticated look. What adds to this transformation are the original floorboards - sanded down, stained and varnished.
A spare sitting room, decorated before a log burner was installed. There are big French doors going out to the garden and the customer wanted a quiet room for reading and listening to old records! I have to say, I adore sage. It's a warm, subdued colour. Coupled with Helmsley soft Lopen Sand it replaced tired magnolia
Wish I had taken more pictures of this kitchen. It's a gorgeous country house style kitchen with a stunning wooden units and a double range cooker. What I especially love about this project are the wood finishes - Little Greene Egsshell in Sage Green over traditional white gloss.
Embossed paper can hide a lot of imperfections and with the right pattern it can look sophisticated and classy. It looks especially beautiful in period properties with tall ceilings. Here's a ceiling that went from an artex style pattern to a classic Anaglypta.
Kitchen Unit Repaint
Probably my favourite project so far. Complete transformation of what I call a student house style kitchen. MDF cabinets were painted off white at the top and muted blue at the bottom. I've also painted the tiles and the wall white which has brightened the space and made it seem bigger.
I have to say I love white. It’s the most basic colour, but it’s bright and it goes with everything so you can redecorate around it as much as you want. The customer asked for a chimney breast feature wall and the charcoal grey looks great as a background colour of the wooden fireplace surround.
Farrow and Ball Inchyra Blue is a stunning, deep colour with blue, grey and green tones depending on the light. This bedroom in a spacious barn conversion was completely transformed with matching walls and woodwork.
