Dining room

This is arguably the most modern room in the house, with a laminate floor and fairly inoffensive colour scheme.

Fabulous double windows

Fantastic light from the front windows means we’re confident this will, in time, make a great sitting room.

Like much of the rest of the house dodgy plaster mouldings adorn the walls. The grape vine from the lounge has snaked its way into here too.

However, this room gave us some obscured happiness for underneath the layers and layers of paint is an original fire surround just waiting to be rediscovered. Hooray!

The house, throughout, has artexed ceilings  – why, oh why,oh why, would you do that to a period house? The most criminal of all the ceilings is in this room. Behold the horror:

Artex from hell

The beautiful original cornicing gently weeps beneath the artex

The dining room was given a very good send off at our Mexican housewarming party with the high ceiling a perfect excuse for a pinata. Like we needed an excuse.
