I

 could hardly wait to share this post with all of you, because I worked so damn hard to paint this room and ta-daaa, it’s done! Well, almost. I’ve installed new lighting and I still want a blue carpet and we’re still adding custom brass pulls on the drawers. I’ll  surely share an update once that’s done! If you’re looking for a budget friendly brass spotlight, we picked this one and it looks far better than expected! The picture doesn’t do it justice.

Back to the current situation. After a loooong week of priming and painting, everything still needed to find its place, and before I knew it, I’ve been on this project, sleeping in our office for two weeks. Our home is pretty much still a mess, but the closet looks good. Have a look!

I have to say that shooting this room properly has not been an easy task either. There’s no window and very little natural light in the closet, which is actually pretty good for the clothes, but very bad if you prefer to take pictures without flash. In the end the pictures are a combination of a little bit of both, natural light (with unfortunately a bit of grain) and some experiments with my studio lights.

I’m super happy with the colour we chose: Farrow & Ball’s Pink ground, a perfect peachy blush pink with a lot of yellow. It changes quite a lot depending on the light and creates a neutral yet unexpected backdrop for the clothes.

When we started painting, the walls were already white, but for the new wood I used the Farrow & Ball interior wood primer & undercoat. I must admit that in the past, this would be the part where I would have chosen a cheap primer, but I now think that better primer definitely equals better results. It’s just smoother and covers the surface better, which saves you a lot of time and effort further along in the project. We chose Estate Emulsion as a finish for the walls, which created a beautiful, chalky matt effect and Estate Eggshell  for the wood, a durable finish with the softest eggshell shine, creating a very luxurious atmosphere. A winning combination for sure. What do you think of the result?

    Een prachtige kleerkast! De kleur is zeer rustgevend en geeft een warm en ordelijk gevoel.
    Ik had nog een vraagje; vanwaar komen die groen/blauwe ginko-blaadjes oorbellen?
