Because i'm a fussy beast, i've found and decided what I want, but keeping my options open
with a couple of new tile places suggested to me that aren't over the other side of town.
I loooove the bluestone, but i've found something even prettier I haven't seen in store yet.
Still natural stone, still blue, but with the added interest of autumn tones..
Autumn, my favourite season ♥
Anyway.. we'll see, the race is on...
this is the kitchen/living/pantry to date ..
not much visual change besides the fireplace is in place.
The stonetops are in now too, but the template remains as a protective cover, and it's
heavy and dusty, so i'll leave that reveal for another day..
In other news, i'd decided paints and was quite smug and confident.. except the painters
uh-oh .. undercoated some internal doors I think my husband was hoping to sand back
and restore. Because we were never sure/decided on this anyway, we've decided to let them
get on with it, and if it sucks, we strip them back and start again later on down the track.
But I don't have colours for doors.
What I do know though is that I love hi-gloss enamel on doors and trims, so keep in mind
the look will be glossy.
And maybe a blue-grey. Kinda like the bluestone I seem so fixated on ...
The main paints are:
WALLS: Dulux White Duck Half-Strength ( more a light beige )
TRIMS: Dulux Vivid White ( as name suggests .. )
DOORS: Well, as of yesterday ( armed with a dozen grey swatches .. my favourite being
Mallard Grey - it's a Mallard! It's a duck! Get the connection! .. but it was too red/purple ) ..
I ended up with something called Monk Grey ( it's the middle colour above the door-handle up there )
Again, I have a thing for contrast.. but am wondering if I should just keep them in white?
They look good in the pics white, but .. in real-life? Not.so.sure.
I have a similar blue-grey on the roller blinds, which you can see a bit of, and of course,
there will be a bluestone splashback ( 99.8% sure ) and i'll be continuing those over at the
BUT! Will it be too dark? And where do I stop - should I make ALL my doors dark grey,
or just those in the original end? It seems I really am bad at decision making ;)
In fact, the more I look at these, I totes think dark grey is the way to go.
Opinions, both good & bad, always welcome..
