Bathroom - before
We have gone for a palette of greens, greys and blue adding touches of colour here and there. All the walls were painted in Dulux white mist, the carpets in the lounge and bedrooms - grey. Tiled floors in the bathroom and cloakroom, also grey. Amtico in the kitchen, also grey but on the cream spectrum. The hall and back sitting room have parquet flooring which we discovered under the old carpets. The back sitting room has our old sofa so the only room thats not too grey, but as I said, still not got curtains for this room. We installed vertical blinds for extra privacy as the lounge window is over 4m wide and it's a bit like sitting in a goldfish bowl, also its gets very hot and sunny so at least the new sofas won't get damaged. It's a much smaller property than we had before, but with the changes we have made feels roomy and to be honest we don't miss the old place, apart from the barn and the garden - though we'd have no time for all that now. We are really happy with how it's all turned out, but not keen on doing it again!
