We’re nearly there

We’re finally getting there with my office, when we moved down to Devon I was still working for Yell Ltd and they kindly set me up with equipment in my office, however, as we had the whole house to renovate, it was the last room we would be spending money on, so for 3 years I worked in a freezing cold, damp office that was totally uninspiring.

Nige then took over the office when I left Yell and added his junk personal items to it, this was the last picture taken in it’s sorry state a few months ago.

The walls have been painted in Farrow & Ball, Pavilion Grey, the floor is in limed French Oak, I now just have to add the finishing touches!

Before & After

I’ve been busy over the past few weeks, making blinds for a local holiday home that’s been preparing for the Summer season, more photos of this property later.

My client decided to freshen up the master bedroom, she wanted to use the lovely duck egg gingham from Laura Ashley for her blinds, so I advised her to paint one of the walls in duck egg to tie it all in together & then made four black out blinds to fit in the bay window

In the other bedroom we used Spotty from the Summer Breeze collection, from Clarke & Clarke, this also being a black out blind, has made a great difference to the sleep quality in this room.
