Kerrie Griffin Award Winning Interior Designer founder of The Interior Co, Gets Painting! I've made the decision to give my Grade 2 listed farmhouse's front door a fresh coat of paint. This decision is twofold: it will provide better protection for the timber, and it aligns with my preference for a streamlined aesthetic. While I appreciate the charm of exposed timber, such as a beautifully uncovered oak beam, I'm not a fan of excessive orange timber. However, that's a topic for another time.
If you're looking to revamp your entrance, consider giving your door a makeover. When it comes to selecting a colour, I recommend using a colour chart to find a shade that either blends seamlessly with your property or stands out boldly, depending on your preference.
Since I have to strip off all the existing PVC paint from this building, I need a starting point for my design.
What my client's brief is, ultimately starts the thought process, but Kerrie says some clients bring nothing to the brief meeting. They have a bag of ideas in their head or books but cannot find a way to express them. It’s my job as an Interior Designer to bring their thoughts alive by showing them room ideas built from what limited information they have given me.
This beautiful victorian pine cabinet was hidden in an upstairs bedroom. I stripped it years ago when it was in to strip everything made out of wood, but had a moment last weekend and convinced my daughter to help me drag it downstairs to transform. Painted in Farrow & Ball.
See what I do to transform it.
Adding interest in a garden
Who doesn't love a bit of interest in the garden something to watch a little weekend project? I debated for some time weather to put these in a row or random because I like things lined up in threes.
Get the Look
I bought these simple bird houses from home bargains they were only £3.99 in blue or green I would stick to three of the same colour, obviously if your building is very long use 4 o5 to create impact for a fraction of the cost of other bird house. Be prepared though they don’t last forever I bought one around 2 years ago and the roof started coming off I just nailed it on, so feel free to choose something more substantial like the following.
