I’m having a last minute wobble about the wallpaper and paint combo I’ve chosen for the living room/dining room.
It’s a ridiculously shaped layout as once upon a time it was two rooms with the stairs cutting through the middle but now you access the living room going under the alcove under the stairs.
This means there’s a long wall from the front of the house to the back of the house with three alcoves and two fireplaces.
My plan was to pain the peripheral walls white to brighten up the rooms, I’ve been doing little bits each day and am pleased with how it is in fact brightening up the gloom of an Edwardian house.
I ordered wallpaper which I hunted down as no where seems to stock it anymore and picked up a pot of paint in teal (sorry!).
My plan was to paint the chimney breasts the teal colour (Wilko Electric Teal Matt) and have the wallpaper (Glitz Taupe by Arthouse) ending up something like this:
But having opened the package for the wallpaper it seems much lighter in real life and now I’m worried the white peripheral walls won’t look right.
What to do?!
