A Whiff of Paint

Remember the paint colours I chose last month?

Despite atrocious weather in Sydney last week, the painters managed to do an external coat of Ivory on the windows and eaves. The white downpipe will be painted Manor Red to match the guttering.

The Geek says the return to original paint colours has aged the house. In a nice way. At least, I think that's what he meant. Meanwhile, I'm immensely relieved at the way the study has turned out (it's not quite complete here; the woodwork needs another coat of China White).

I feared it might look like the inside of a nappy, but fortunately, it looks like cocoa powder.

The boys are thrilled with the Harbour Blue in their bedroom.

And here is a single coat of Clotted Cream in the family room. You can see more Clotted Cream above the picture rails in the other rooms.

Hope you have enjoyed a sniff of my new colours! I will give you a proper tour once the painters have finished.

This post is a part of the Paint, Please link party at Modern Country Style.

I LOVE seeing newly painted rooms. I especially love the clotted cream. It looks like the cream we all long for - not too white, not too yellow. Yummy!

I've signed up to follow you. I can't wait to see how you fill these rooms!

Thank you so much for linking up to my 'Paint, Please' link party.

Glad you like it! There is only one room where the colour isn't quite what I expected, but you'll have to wait to see it...
