The Temptation of Teal

With just over two weeks before the decorators weave their magic on the office-bedroom conversion, things were getting a little tense at this end as we still hadn’t found the right wallpaper! You know what it’s like – there’s a particular colour that just works with everything else, but nowhere seems to have it. We had already decided to go for bold/strong colours in the room and maybe that made the colour-matching more difficult, so tonight, we were determined to get it all sorted – virtually!

So, after some serious surfing on the ‘net, we managed to find…

a teal chair!

…and after that slight distraction, we soldiered on, after reviewing some wallpaper samples we ordered in the post. Success! – and a massive sigh of relief as we clicked on ‘confirm your order’ at good ol’ John Lewis having found the exact shade and texture - Sanderson’s Linum design in Lime.

We’re now just left with sorting out the window-blinds, and then everything is sourced. The room will feel very ‘60s’ and so we’ll ensure provide guests with sunglasses before they enter!
