After a few weeks when it seemed like nothing much tangible was happening (though I knew a ton of stuff was happening behind the scenes) we’ve suddenly made huge progress in the last week.
The big news is that, not only do we have primed white walls and ceilings, but the floor has been laid. I am so pleased with it. I was a little worried that it would be too dark but I think it is warm and inviting and will hopefully look even less forbidding when the whole symphony of white above it fully unfolds.
Here is what the ‘symphony of white’ is going to look like. I realise you can’t see any difference at all between any of them on your screens, though they are there. I have to run off now to a meeting at the Minx’s school, so I think we’ll talk about whites in another blog post.
The other big news is the arrival of a jolly green giant this morning in the shape of our new Big Chill fridge (of which more too next week). And it fits into the space we left for it! Much excitement all round here as it slid smoothly into the allotted gap.
Again I am delighted with it. It was a ridiculous amount of money of course, and it’s huge design blogger cliché, but I do think it gives the room a focal point and the green reflects all the light in the kitchen and appears less sickly than it seemed from the sample.
All hugely thrilling, I am starting to see light at the end of the tunnel.
