We are surrounded by the visual and smell of fresh paint! Sitting on dust sheets and smiling as we do the final bits of Christmas shopping.
Having just done one room, I can start to see and visualise the end game. This beautiful old house being returned to its original splendour, with a fresh, modern touch.
Calm and confident.
Simple and elegant.
Stripped back of all the loud embellishments following patience and hard work.
The parallels continue – the story of our house and how we make it a new home, a central part of our healing process and the foundations of our future together.
The colours also give a nod to our personal stories; his front room and lounge in soft, humble tones of grey, while my library is in bold and strong blue.
The transition and the transformation phases are interesting chapters. I look forward to the next ones with a mixed sense of overwhelming excitement!
