I’ve been rather inspired by something Esther Walker wrote in her blog The Spike to think about doing a bit more decorating in the IoW. The problem is, we’ve stopped noticing the decor, despite not liking it very much (my Mum saw it and said “Oh yes, Laura Ashley, 1982”).
The rooms left to do are the living room and dining rooms (we’ll wallpaper these, I’m thinking something William Morris – more on this another time), our bedroom (not sure whether to wallpaper or paint), the guest rooms at the top of the house (these we’ll paint) and the hallway (currently painted a seriously horrid shade of pink, we’ll repaint).
So far my ideas for the hallway are:
- Elephants Breath
- Cornforth White
- Purbeck stone; and
- Lamp Room Gray.
It’s all basically different shades of grey which I like but will need to convince my husband.
