Here we have a farmhouse living space packed to the brim with traditional features such as original cornice, dado and picture rails, complete with original solid stone fireplace and hearth…

After a log burner was installed the owners felt that the entire room needed redesigning to compliment the new installation and its features. This project involved an initial interior design consultation where colours and papers were discussed in detail.  Papers had already been selected and we were tasked to base a neutral colour scheme to compliment it…  Here are some ‘before’ pictures.  We began by stripping off the old wallpaper and as you can see the plaster needed lots of attention…

The paper chosen utilised natural tones and images so we decided that a Farrow & Ball Colour scheme using a ‘Strong White’ Ceiling, A ‘Shaded White’ upper wall and a textured paper similar to ‘Charleston Grey’ for the lower wall.  The dado and picture rails where picked out in matching colours to blend them into their surroundings.  All finished in a dead flat matt emulsion and eggshell to give that classic look and feel.

Radiator being drained and removed before thorough decoration could take place…

The radiator had to be drained and removed to be able to reach and prepare behind it thoroughly…  and below we have the finished room.  As you can see we also picked out the inside of the cabinet detail in the wall colour to give extra dimension to the scheme.  Below we have a before and after shot of the problem plaster wall…

and finally we have the finished product…
