We finally got round to another stage of our decorating project today, applying a first coat of coloured paint. The colour is a Dulux Light and Space called Lemon Spirit. It took a fair while to apply but it looks great. Depending on light and angle it appears anything from a bold lemon tone to almost white. However much you try to visualise a finish or even paint pieces of paper to hang up as samplers, there is no substitute for actually getting paint on the wall.
In fact I’m hesitant to apply the second colour to the scheme, a mid-range grey called Chic Shadow, but I think we’re going to risk it even though yellow and white is looking so good at the moment.
