After a bit of detective work we have finally managed to match the paint colours and product used on neighbouring houses. It’s a Swedish make of paint called Jotun and the colours are non-standard, so it took some time to get the match.
Spotlights are currently being installed in most of the rooms. Here’s a shot of the living room, where we have temporarily put them in place in the ceiling:
We opted for simple white, coated metal spots which we felt were a good fit for the house, and Byker’s cheap, cheerful, Scandinavian feel.
Hopefully when we paint the ceilings white the spots will look even better.
We have also started the process of applying for planning permission and listed building consent (LBC) to replace the windows and doors:
Next job: painting the exterior cladding before the new windows and doors are installed. Waiting for some alright weather..!
