House is being completely overhauled. We need to pin down some details in the coming weeks.
1. Colours - it is not a huge house so we want the same colour scheme through out the house. I like lake colours and colour scheme 2 - which one do you like best? I think the first one is warmer perhaps?
We have settled on the tiles for hall, kitchen and bathrooms grey tiles bottom right but in 60x60, and wall tiles above for around bath/shower and behind sink. Rest of bathroom white.
Kitchen is white with granite worktops, contemporary style.
Living room white walls with solid oak flooring, still have this sofa but it will be replaced in a year or two.
Help me work out what colour and where to put it. Do I choose one wall in living room / dining room and make that the blue/green wall? And do I repeat that throughout the house?
Oh, and if anyone knows about lighting schemes, we could chat about that too
I found out when studying French farce that you're supposed to find things like that funny 'cos you're glad it's not you. I don't - I identify with them and get upset on their behalf (like the Laurel and Hardy piano episode: it's just not fair !! ).
I'll leave the room if I think things are going to get embarassing.
I have to self-censor a lot. Even things like Monty Pythons I can't watch all of.
Love it when a plan starts to come together. Have been here since August and have ripped out 2 bedrooms bathroom and kitchen/diner. New heating electrics, doors and windows. Cleaned yesterday and couldn't understand why it was so easy - there were no piles of 'stuff' to move from one rm to another and whole place looked like mine!! I'm sure the rest will be a doddle!! although if you are like me the cheap lighting/tiles/ fittings etc. won't be just 'quite' right and you'll just have to have the dear one or it just won't look good!!!
We had a lot of problems finding the gold colour for our walls (which is actually a peachy colour but looks gold in our house). I saw a colour scheme in a magazine I loved and bought sample pots of it from BM. Painted them on the walls. The gold looked like primrose in parts of the house (exactly what I was trying to avoid) and the beautiful sagey green looked like prison grey. Yuck.
It took about ten to fifteen attempts for all the different colours but by then I'd wised up and instead of painting samples on the wall I painted a foam core board and moved it around the house. You might try that, it is a lot easier!
A few posts behind sorry... Wallpaper is Neisha Crosland. I love the greys greens and bluey hues. Grey is good because it goes with all the brights as well as muted colours. A pop of orange, pink or teal.
