Mrs Thrifty, me.
I've always loved the colours on my stairs.
And after some minor agonising over how cold (despite its hugely efficient radiator) the new shower room looked, with its small North-facing window and its walls hastily covered with leftover white paint, I had an inspired little idea. I had lots of the lighter shade of the stair paint left over; that would change the feel of the shower room.
A couple of walls are now painted with the leftover pale lilac-y grey of the stairs, the beam picked out in the darker shade.
Co-ordination and penny-saving; just the ticket for a bathroom on a budget. Pictures and yet more hanging glass baubles from Amsterdam were moved from elsewhere, and the Lloyd Loom chair, its original colour a little drab, was swapped for a white one from the spare room.
It is still a pale, light little room, but not so chilly-looking.
I like it! And I'm glad that it's finished.
