Kerrie remembers as a child waiting for tea and her father said to her mother have i just got time to knock this wall down her mother knew that saying no to her sagiterian husband wouldnt make a blind bit of difference if he was in a get things done mode and so with in a few minuites the dinner was served and the wall in the kitchen came crumbling down around the dinner! her dad said there thats better as he emerged from the rubble to wash his hands and sat down to tea admiring his handy work.
The house was always filled with laughter as he would always take semi calculated risks and was a bit of a dare devil with will it all come tumbling down, so Kerries need to follow in her fathers footsteps began.

This room is painted in Mouses back by Farrow and Ball Kerrie then painted the wood which was oak but had a horrible orabge tinge in House White by Farrow and Ball to create a fresh hotel feel. The light on the day of the shoot made the walls look a greyer than the browner look later in the day. There are three big windows in the room one very high up and it goes full hight to the ceiling.
