Brit Decor Home:















I realise it's been a very long while since I last posted an update on here about living in a renovation project. In all honesty very little has happened over the last ten months in terms of major building works - as real life pretty much got in the way and our focus had to switch to a family crisis and eventually losing a loved one.

All being well, works are planned to resume again late Summer and, fingers crossed, we can finally think about some nice new flooring once all of the knocking down of walls and re-plastering is complete (walking around on old underlay and temporary flooring is so un-glamorous!)

If I rewind ten months, when our living room ceiling and walls were re-plastered, I was keen to get a basic scheme completed to make at least a couple of rooms in the house feel a little more like 'home'. Without the time to devote to a full design process, I opted for a dreamy pale grey nicely juxtaposed with a warmer dusty pink.

Over the time that we've been living here, I have been wowed by the amount of bright south-westerly light which floods our home every day. This also means that paler colours such as those in our living room, frequently appear bleached. With this in mind I'm now experimenting with darker and richer hues (similar to those of our velvet sofa cushions pictured 'below') in a quest for a cosier and more dramatic scheme.

Watch this space...
