…and it was all yellow

Lana took these photos of the living room today - same room, same paint, but she says the one on the right is more like it looks in real life.

Lana used the word “kindergarten” in her description of what it looks like, so I’m scared to go there now!

I’m sure it’ll look ok with the floor cleaned and some furniture in there.

Terrace Tiled!

We actually ran out of tiles and the shop only had the same range in a different shade, so we had to do a border but I think it turned out well!

Paint… at last!

We’ve finally got some paint on the walls and ceiling. Not quite finished but it’s starting to look the part.

All the ceilings are flat white but for the walls and coffers we used Caparol Samtex 20, which is like a vinyl silk finish. It may look like we made a mistake by not using a flat finish for the coffers, but this is a (cough) design feature as these are bedrooms so although the finish on the soffit looks a bit too shiny we haven’t got the curtains up yet (which will cut the reflection down a bit), we won’t be using these rooms much when it IS light, it’ll be good for washing dead mosquitoes off (very important!), and it’ll help to lighten the room up in the morning when we really will appreciate that little bit of help in waking up!

We’ll only be using the silk finish for the walls everywhere else!

This is Georgi’s room. The colour on the walls is COELIN 55 and the slightly darker shade on the ceiling border is COELIN 60. It’s a kind of green-blue colour.

This is the other bedroom. The colours here are APRICO 175 for the walls and APRICO 180 for the ceiling border.

The Apricot colour will also be used in the kitchen, while in the living room and entrance lobby/corridor we are using a yellow colour called CURRY 115 & 120.
