I know what you mean. I ended up drawing the floor plan to scale and then cutting bits of card to scale to represent the furniture and shuffling them around till I was happy. It then took us a mere 30 minutes of discussion with kitchen man who said it was the easiest kitchen he'd ever designed!
For the annex I'm on version 5 or 6 as I recycle or abandon various bits of the old kitchen and fit in those 2 pine pieces. Do I want a table or a comfy chair? Then colours? The kitchen is quite strong and fitted so maybe the annex can be completely neutral and not fitted which will allow me to play with different looks thru the seasons. Decisions decisions.
And when they're done I have to mull over colours for the rest of the downstairs and that very stripey landing........ One of the estate agent's photos
It runs from rear to front so north to south from the stairs. I rather like the outrageous stripes too but some of it is peeling and the door surrounds all need finishing. The paintwork at either end is grey and so is Possum's room which has a huge mural of NY. We want to keep that but go pale grey on the walls as it is so dark in there and will look better with the strangely green floor.
Those pics taken at height of summer. It is very dark in winter.
Love it 😍 I like grey and green and that is going to be mostly colour combination when I re decorate front room. Going for brighter green though. Going to paper the longest wall with French ticking apple green stripe. Clad the chimney breast and paint dark grey. Rest of walls will remain light grey.
love your rads and look the same as we have just put in 😊
She hated it at first, then liked it and wanted it to stay dark but after 3 recent visits between Xmas and start of March she agrees it's too dark and need to go light grey.
I like the sound of your green and grey but this grey is too dark and dull for that green and I can't change the floor.
I like the rads too but they're a nightmare to clean and paint - just done the one in the kitchen - so we'll be boxing in the two in the smaller bedrooms as that gives extra shelf space too but keeping the rest as they are for now.
hello all, beautiful Yvie, love that apint colour, what is it? I'm in need of inspiration for hallway and all our flooring, it's mostly original floorboards, but we had some floorboards put down when we move in too, all have gaps in them and I spend half my time with a knife trying to clean them or retrieve tiny items crucial to my 6 year old! now, shall I jsu whack darker wax down? Floor paint? Or save up and get new floors...?
