You might remember we are in the process of re-decorating our downstairs rooms after sanding our wooden floors.
Well, we've completed the dining room... and it feels wonderful.
The blue colour I chose is called Blue's Blue - from the Paint & Paper Library. I must admit it is NOT the colour I had in my head. I stupidly went to the Interiors shop with Rufus. With instructions from Dan 'just get what you like'. Well that in it's self sent me into a spin. I couldn't make a decision! Rufus decided to pick up everything in the shop (think delicate ceramics) so after a quick flustered decision this is what I came away with. It will grow on me I am sure. I was looking for a more calming blue grey colour.. but instead have a dark opulent blue. Ah well, the Gladioli's look great against it. As do my mid-century ceramics and sideboard.
What I am loving is the fresh white everywhere else. Fresh white without crayon marks or grubby hand prints - I am loving this so hard as I am sure it won't last the week!
We (Dan) is taking a break from DIY for a bit... we have the kitchen to do next. It's a big job. Re-tiling, painting and filling. Maybe I'll give him a week off! ;-)
