Apologies in advance for the picture heavy post, but I’m very excited to share this corner of my new living room with you. I’m not quite ready to reveal the whole room yet, but I hope this corner gives you an idea of the pale, light and bright theme I’m going for!
After a quick google into the best white paint for walls, I discovered that most professional decorators use Dulux. So I went for their bog standard matt pure brilliant white, cheap as chips from B&Q in enormous plastic tubs. I was a little worried that it would have a cold, bluish tone, but I had to need to worry, as it’s a lovely, soft white with good coverage. I spent the first few weeks of living here with it splattered through my hair, but it’s been worth it, as it has really lightened and brightened the rooms I’ve used it in. I highly recommend it if you’re using for a nice white paint which won’t break the bank.
The floor is painted in Slipper Satin by Farrow & Ball, not quite as bargain-tastic as the Dulux paint, but worth it for the choice of colours you get. Slipper Satin is a gorgeous, soft off white, I’ve used it in my daughter’s bedroom too. I’ve chosen a few of my car boot finds to display in the glazed dresser, and fairy lights add a magical touch.
I hope to share the completed room with you very soon!
