The master bedroom was basically finished months ago but only today were the roman blinds installed. Until now we just had old sheets pinned to the window frames, which let a lot of light in during the night (there’s a streetlight opposite) and I’m not sure how opaque they were in terms of privacy… All that is just a memory now as these new blinds have block-out fabric that I will test tonight.
So what have we done in this room? Walls have been stripped of the old wallpaper, patched and plastered. New electrics installed and the radiator was moved. The ceiling was overboarded and skimmed because the old ceiling had severe cracks. I never had the heart to rip out the built-in wardrobe on the right, and I’m glad, even if it makes the room asymmetrical.
We redecorated of course. The carpet was replaced. The wallpaper is Laura Ashley – Linen. Paint colours are Farrow and Ball’s ‘Dimity’ on the non-papered walls and ‘Wimborne White’ above the picture rail.
We added the ceiling rose, which we feel is in keeping with the house, though originally there would have been gas lights on the walls. And the windows were cleaned yesterday – for the first time in over two years!Another room complete!
