T the decorator finished the painting of bedroom five yesterday and today we removed the paper protecting the floor, rehung the blind and fitted the light shade. We are now in the process of moving stuff back into this room and there are some new pieces of furniture on order too.
The paint colour is Farrow and Ball ‘Elephant’s Breath’.
A couple of you asked about this little arch. It’s part of the structure of the chimney – this is the third floor and there are a total of six rooms that have flues running up behind this wall. I’m not sure if the arch aids in strengthening the chimney above or whether they just thought it would be wasted space if it were bricked in.
