So, let's just go round the room as best we can. Cleaner fireplace, mantelpiece done for Christmas (which is a minimalist style in this house) New lovely bookcase with just a few spaces left in case books arrive for Christmas !!!
Here's the door, now (after only 13 years) painted and only awaiting it's lock and handle. Yes, that is a framed picture on the door and you can thank Ed, the CEO at Libertys' of London for that bright idea. Ed - you are a genius! That window overlooks the garden, and beneath the blind is a little window seat now (cushion to follow).
That's it then, got the dark blue room I wanted, and at night you can see how cosy it is. The before pics have already shown you the natural light in this room as it has east and west facing windows. so it never looks gloomy.
The true colour is the second "after" picture.
