Parlour fireplace, panelling and wallpaper

The girls and I did some good work on the WAMH yesterday! This is just a quick post to show you what Fred worked on.

She painted the wood panelling a dark grey-blue (it's Montpelier by Benjamin Moore) then glued on the scenic wallpaper. She did a great job! 

This pattern is SC-Clasico by Les Chinoiseries, a Spanish company which makes and sells the most divine wallpapers and fabrics. I cut the border pieces off (I may use them in the blue and white room) and I really like the way it looks with the greyed blue of the panelling. 

The panelling isn't done, of course -- I've just got the chair rail on, but I'm going to do mitred rectangles of moulding in the centre of each panel.  Tiddles worked on the panelling in the hallway, and I've done some work on the wall opposite the one above, but my pictures were lousy :)

Talk to you soon!



  1. You give a lot to do, to those parts...
    This room (like all) is getting better so awesome!
    I had never seen before this wallpaper: is really amazing ...
    How sounds good "the blue and white room" ...
    Eager to see the rest :-)

  2. Oh! I love the wall! It looks absolutely cool!:D The colours are great!

  3. Thanks so much, Flora and Ewa!

    I really am enjoying working on this house so very much. It's such a pleasure to work with really pretty elements like the fireplaces and the wallpaper -- such a change from the Tudor period (which I also love, but it gets a little samey after a while :)

  4. Ooooooh! Wonderful wallpaper! I LOVE the smokey gray color! You are making some gorgeous rooms! The girls are doing GREAT work! What a fabulous thing to have you for their mentor to help them make so many things!
