Week 86 – Second fix almost complete plus Crittall samples!

Wow, another milestone…we have light upstairs! And Eddie, the electrician, is almost done! Maybe just a few more days than we are good to go.

And the cinema room really is taking shape; these small diamond spotlights are SO twinkly!! And the lightsaber wall lights finish it off a treat! Great advice from Claire at Luxplan with regards to lighting, we hadn’t come across these before.

We just need the wood flooring laid, a big sofa, a big screen and some black shutters!! Easy right?!

Such a great splay of light

Andy was a little unsure about the “peacock” style lights but these look so cute in the living room and give off a nice splay of light, definitely for show though!

Plus, the Tom Raffield Skipper pendant is looking good in the living room…

And alongside the peacock wall lights…

Also, the big ball lights in the bedroom look great! Just what we wanted, and we’ve ordered our bed too! We were going to go with a four poster, but I really think we need to show off these pendant lights, so we’ve gone for the Oliver bed from Feather & Black in pink! We decided to go a little daring, and it should look great with the Green Smoke walls and Setting Plaster ceiling…(Farrow and Ball paint colours)

And the lights are up in the guest bedroom too, how cool are these? More lightsabers!

Plus the guest ensuite is ready for grouting now, and we’ll get this done in week 87.

And, as promised, steel finishes samples, for all things crittall! As mentioned in our last post, we’ll be having this in numerous places. We quickly decided to go with the matte finish for everything!

If we were living in a period property, we might have been swayed more towards the LAQ, STOVAX, or PATINA… a little bit more rustic, but I think matte will be better for us.

And that’s it for another week! Week 87 will be a busy one, with the second fix pretty much wrapped up, and the plumber back to sort out the heat pump. As well as the kitchen delivery! Oh my goodness, I’m so excited for that! Watch this space.
