I know corridor is such a long word for such a tiny area of the house... But it's right in front of my bedroom and I couldn't stand to go to sleep waking through this:

IMGP1898

Je sais, l'espace est tellement petit qu'il ne mérite pas le nom de couloir! Mais traverser tous les soirs ce mélange d'orange (couleur que j'adore, comme chacun sait...) et de bordeaux... avec des motifs qui ne sont même pas des fleurs (un truc incompréhensible pour moi), je ne pouvais plus! J'ai donc pris mon pinceau, avec d'autant moins d'appréhension, que je veux casser ce petit couloir plus tard... Donc, si je me rate, rien de catastrophique!

 

So here is what it looks like now:

IMGP1969

It was hardwork to get the burgundy to come back to white. The walls are painted a slightly darker shade of white. I really like the light there is in that small space now... And as you notice I still have to do the landing, which is painted with various shades of yellow and orange.

This was my first big painting job: I'm aware that there are many mistakes... But practice makes perfect! It's a good thing I didn't choose the living-room as my first project!

 

If shades of white inspire you, you might want to have a look at those two blogs.

 

Si le blanc et ses variantes vous inspire, allez faire un tour sur ces blogs:
