What Houzz contributors are saying:
“We broke the concrete subfloor and made it level, so it would be continuous all the way through,” Sami says. “The plank floorboards help to draw your eye along the whole space.”He restored the period feel of the property with new cornicing and a matching ceiling rose. “The cornicing is quite big, but the high ceiling and bay window allowed us to use larger proportions,” Sami says.The owners chose a blue-green colour for the walls and skirting boards, and Sami contrasted this with an off-white colour on the ceiling. “When you’re using green, brown or grey on the walls, it’s better to phase it in with an off white,” he explains. “When there’s a stark contrast with bright white, your eye tends to shoot up to the ceiling.”Ceiling painted in Mallow White, Dulux.
