turning on the heat

paint
you can have any colour you want as long as it is neutral

colour enthusiasts may be a bit disappointed with my choice of grey

the susan/rachel guestroom is painted out to match benjamin moore's bleeker beige

most of the open areas are painted in a very light grey which reads as warm white

almost all of the doors have been hung, trimmed and painted

Lauchie is home and is enjoying the reno up-close and personal. But he wants to make sure that my audience (he holds up two fingers to indicate the readers) is kept up to date on the activity on the jobsite. Most of the work that has gone on over the last two weeks is not very photogenic. The painting of white primer with almost white paint doesn't look like much. The installation of the on-floor heat system gave me something graphic to work with. More artworks from Tony the plumber. The weather today is gloriously sunny and the light pouring in through the new windows made us anxious to move back in. It won't be long now. The floors are scheduled for installation next Wednesday and the kitchen goes in the following week.

I love my room colour, thank you! And the rest of the house is perfect too. Meantime, I'm agonising and dithering about the addition of colour to this mostly white house; I so need someone to help!

Looking forward to seeing the floors next; my stone sample arrived today, and should spur me on to make the order for the hall floor.....

Tell Lauchie that Damien and I are watching from Longitude 100 with great interest!
Looks fantastic!

Back in a week. Look forward to seeing more progress. My only concern as a girl is all that "stuff" that cost so much $$, is hidden...I know you understand.
