Living Room Part 1 (Preparation)

We have been in No 38 for just over four weeks and one of the first jobs was to get the front room sorted in time for Christmas.

We have always been pretty safe with colours over the years, and not strayed far from clean whites, with the occasional feature wall for a splash of colour!

So, deciding to use Farrow & Ball Off Black was really outside of our comfort zone, but we bought No 38 to be adventurous and stamp our identity on this wonderful house.

First job was to get a dark undercoat over the light beige walls, remove the wallpaper from the chimney breast and sort out a couple of imperfections!

The room is South facing with a wonderful bay window providing plenty of natural light even in December.

Nearly ready for the F&B!
