Paint Sales take a Downton

Interesting article in the Telegraph – you will now be able to buy Downton Abbey paints.

Mylands Paints will sell you Amber Grey to emulate Mrs Patmore’s rather dreary kitchen or Empire Grey to make your dining room like Mr Carson’s gloomy pantry.

Heritage paint names have been around since the 80′s, but maybe we have taken it too far, but just how far could this go? adding a touch of Albert Square beige to your skirtings; the merest hint of Rovers Return Yellow in the downstairs Loo; and TOWIE Beige for the kitchen units?

Country House is back in style… ……

Country House is back in style…

… Well that’s according to the Sunday Times homes supplement, Country House style is back in fashion – sorry, when did it go out of fashion?
However, now Laura Ashley are making repro dressing tables for about £1,000 don’t you think it’s a good idea to buy the real thing for half that!

Look at the quality of the antique table below – as I always say, the devil is in the detail.

Decorating is a game of Charts Dear…

Decorating is a game of Charts

Dear All,
Here is something we tried recently in our small downstairs cloakroom at the Bath House. We papered the walls with out-of-date admiralty charts and then put Harve’s sailing photos across the wall to give it a real nautical theme. You could try the same thing with old ordnance survey maps or even school room wall atlases.
An affordable and quick “pick me up”.
