Yesterday was a day very much to my liking: I worked from home (my sister would say that I "worked" from home...), had a delicious home-cooked lunch at my Mum's, went to the gym with a friend after work, and then to the shop where my sister helped me to look at wallpapers last week.
This time, I went there to tell the people at the shop which wallpapers I have chosen, to find matching paint for the other three walls in each room and the dividing line between walls and ceiling. So far, this line has been painted a deep, warm terracotta shade, chosen by Steve and matching the general colour theme in our rooms. The only exception is my current bedroom, where the line is in a strong blue shade to match the one light blue and the other three pale yellow walls.
Here's what I've come up with:
The "feature wall" in the living room is going to have the grey version, and my bedroom the blue.
The three other walls in both rooms are going to be done in this yellow.
In the living room, the line between walls and ceiling will be painted like this. (Of course, each computer monitors shows colours in a shlightly different way, so if the grey does not match the wallpaper for you, don't worry - in reality, it matches perfectly.)
For the line in the bedroom, I have chosen this light blue. It is exactly the same as the flowers on the wallpaper.
Next Monday, Mr. PaintShop will come to have a look at my place, see what exactly I want to have done and then give me his cost estimate. I have absolutely no idea what to expect in terms of money, but I have options. If it seems too much, I'll only let the professionals do the wallpapering and will ask a friend (who is very good at this) to do the painting for me. Of course, he'll be paid as well.
It's going to be fun!
