Another week has passed and I still seem to be drowning in boxes. Half the furniture is still to arrive (long story) so we are making do. There is some movement forward though. The first painter is coming next week to quote on the interior. I don't even want to think about the exterior yet. The conservation architect is due in the next few days too. I have quite a few ideas to run by him ;) Today's video is of the dining room and peek towards the third bedroom which will become Kelvin's office (more next week). Thinking white walls for the dining room with a fab 80s glass table and some funky chairs. Maybe multiple bare frame lampshades hanging from the ceiling and one huge art piece for the longest wall. The office will be dark and cave like with a gentlemen's club meets eccentric artist vibe. (You can read more of my ideas here.) I managed to video the entire house before most of the "stuff" arrived and will be posting one each weekend until I have some afters to show. I need to make myself a strong cup of tea and run a hot shower. I'm dusty and sore from lugging furniture upstairs. Don't you hate it when the bookcase is 2cm too big to fit beside the fireplace?
The blurry befores with the previous owner's things. The lighting is low in these rooms and my hand unsteady but you get the idea.
Update - Kelvin doesn't want the third bedroom as an office. He just wants a space at the end of the breezeway. You'll see that next week. Looks like the third bedroom is now the guest room for Kim and Jeff. Should I still paint it Oreo brown or a dark dark black blue?
