Bye Bye Red

red wall

After living with this red wall for 14 years, I feel a twinge of sadness as I say goodbye to it. After all, I lovingly painted it – solo – when I first moved in. Three coats in three days. On one wobbly ladder.

While I loved it (and still do), I am ready for a more understated colour now. Sign of maturity (or perhaps, old age)?

Tomorrow, it’s a new colour. And a new chapter.

    Actually my office (here in the UK) also has a tiled floor along with the red wall; its an annexe off the kitchen as it was originally the integral garage. We carried on the tiling from the kitchen, so if we sell the buyers would have the option of using it as an office or as a utility room, or even a pantry.

    The tiled floor seems the more unusual part

  3. Haha, we are about to say “hello red” to our son’s room!
