• Washing Beams In A Period House by Multi Award Wining Interior Designer Kerrie Griffin

    #property #bloggerstyle #renovationproject #Periodproperty #interiordesigner #interiorinfluencer #interiordesignteqniques Properties are one of my favorite challenges, bringing out the detail was easy in this period hallway. The beams are 500 years old they came from a ship, the property was built on a wood yard and the timber I am told was from a Spanish boat.

    The room looked uninviting as you entered it because the room was filled with overhead horizontal and vertical beams, honestly, it was just dark and dingy looking, I created a wash and went about lightening the beams with my recipe. I have won best country house in Period Living for what I did in the lounge of this farmhouse.
