We have made some progress in the house this week. Just about all the previous horrific coloured woodwork has been obliterated. This is no mean feat I can tell you. No more lilac in the bedroom. No more shades of green in the hallway. It's all gone!
I've needed to see some physical progress this week. Juggling work, builders, half term last week really took it's toll, so I am cheered up no end to have a glimpse of the vision we are looking to achieve.
And all the beautiful wallpaper has arrived too. That was quite a strenuous decision making process that has been going on for about 3 months. I don't know about you, but we've only ever decorated one room at a time before, so to split your energies into getting 3 rooms and the hall, stairs and landing as you want wasn't straight forward. Especially when the man of the house refuses to have anything floral.
We got there in the end though and we are both over the moon with what we have chosen and can't wait to have it up on the walls. Honestly, I feel like a kid whose birthdays have all come at once! I've been promised that the paper is going up in our room on Monday. Quite frankly the look I gave John, the decorator, really should have made him drop everything and put it up there and then. I'm not impressed.
I'm not sure if it does it justice just yet, but here's a little peak of the beautiful grey...and the oh so gorgeous white woodwork...
Have a lovely weekend and check back Monday to see those walls ;-)
Amendment: The aforementioned husband has taken umbridge with the accusation of not wanting anything floral. He would like it made perfectly clear that this was with reference to our bedroom only and with regards flowers. He doesn't mind anything that is an artistic interpretation of flowers, as in the ones we have chosen, but not flowers themselves.
Oh, and I need to mention how lucky I am to have a husband who has agreed to have the wallpapers we have chosen.
(This will teach me to leave my blog open where he can read it!)
