The room had horrible worn carpet, damp wood chip walls in an uninspiring magnolia colour. (FYI: the furniture in the pictures are the previous owners)

Just like the master bedroom, the living room needed all walls and ceiling plastering, new floor, new windows and a new lease of life.

So we started by stripping the wallpaper, pulling up the carpet and leveling up the floor.

Then, it was time to get the plasterer back in (I was at V Festival for this so no photos!) and then base paint the walls white.

We chose to have wood effect laminate flooring in this room to emulate the original floorboards but retain insulation.

So we then painted the wall Vintage White, then laid the flooring.

The timing wasn’t great but the chesterfields turned up before the room was complete and had to stay wrapped up.

Once the huge skirting boards were on I started making it home.

A post on styling will follow…
