House Update

Warning - if you don't like colour, turn away now.....



Our painter has been on the job for two weeks now, and is doing a smashing job! The house looks amazing - unfinished but amazing none the less!

He said today he hasn't painted a house like this for a very long time...most of the modern homes he does are white, cream and beige......and this is such a refreshing change.

We have gone with very traditional colours, with names like sage green, raku, henna red, tea rose, loganberry and a blue colour that I can't quite recall, but I'll get that for you tommorrow!

We have used the popular Antique White USA and double strength of the same for the trims and the VJ wall panelling.

The vanities have been installed in the bathrooms, as well as the laundry bench, cupboards and sink.....

The tiling in the bathrooms, kitchen and laundry is being finished Thursday and Friday, so I'll have some gorgeous pics to share....











Our soffits are done too!!

Oh wow, gorgeous!! It's true - such a colourful house IS unusual these days! But it looks wonderful. A nice traditional, country house in my mind :)

Mum on the Run said...

Oh, that looks magnificent.
Those colours are perfect and offset your white panelling (I know that's not the right word, sorry!) just beautifully.

I love the feel of the place - already (and from here!!)
You must be delighted.

I love the colours and the lower paneling idea. Your verandah is amazing. So close now.

Stunning! Brilliant! Excellent job. Way better than all the new modern homes you find these days. They don't feel homely or have any character. Yours is gorgeous. I love it!

It is rare today for someone to pick colours. When I walked into the shop the salesman instantly tried to talk me into white, seriously! I have nine children I told him, no way am I doing white!

My fav is your green. and your verandahs are awesome, so easily picture you there. We start ours this weekend!

Thanks lovely!!!

River said...

I love your colours so much! They remind me of my daughter's house which had such vibrant colours too. If I wasn't permanently renting, my walls would be richly coloured too. Neutrals can be so boring.
