The space is completely lined. For some reason the location of the wall light has moved way off centre on that wall. It will need to be fixed before it’s skimmed. In this country plasterboard gets skimmed with another layer of plaster – in Australia plasterboard is just filled and painted.
I also put a few paint tester blocks on the wall for the hallways (not that they’re a decorating priority at the moment). That bright blue is out of the running (Farrow and Ball’s St Giles Blue). The other colours are Cornforth White, Elephant’s Breath, Lamp Room Grey, Oval Room Blue and Purbeck Stone. Considering carpet colours too. Oliver and Ruby most closely match the darkest grey but I might go for one of the lighter ones – having carpets a similar colour to the cat fur means it won’t show up so much, especially during shedding season. Three cats all with double coats means a lot of fur on the carpet; every time I vacuum I could just about knit a new cat with the fur in the Dyson.
