Would you like to see another colour scheme? Sure you do!
When we tried to work out this area one thing was very clear – we had a lot of wall and a lot of wood. We also realised we’re so blessed with such great space that we didn’t need to comply with the usual requirement to make a hallway feel larger by keeping the colours light. With this freedom, we were surprised at how quickly we settled on paint colours.
Ready? here goes:
We’re also going to use Slipper Satin on the stairs – on the large original side panels as well as on the spindles and sofits. The newel posts and banisters will be stained (mahogany) and either varnished or waxed.
And that’s it! We were advised to choose colours that make us happy. Oly loved Brinjal when I first started waving F&B colour charts at him so we’re glad to have found it a home. We’ve got all the paint and now, as with the rest of the place, just need to get it on the walls!
We’re really happy with these colours and hope they will transform the house and its entrance way back to a more elegant past, without making it feel too dated.
