Our renovations are continuing apace here at the Chantry. Next on our list was the hallway which, as I’m sure many of you will recall, has needed both a coat of paint and a lot of love for a long time!
The first step was a LOT of prep work – sanding, filling, and scraping back decades of old paint to get a good base for the new decoration took up a significant amount of the time we’d assigned to the work. The decorators were working to a strict deadline, to make sure we disrupted as few of our groups as possible, and they took on the challenge admirably.
It took us a while to choose the right colour but after some deliberation (and a straw poll of anyone the office team spotted around the building) we settled on the soft green you see in the photos. This contrasts nicely with the bright white doors and archways. The downstairs hallway, along with both stairwells, have been transformed with the fresh paint on the walls and woodwork making it look so much brighter and welcoming.
The downstairs section also has new, more discreet, lighting which gives the whole space a lift. We also installed a contrasting carpet (courtesy of Phoenix Flooring), along with new signage from Avon Displays to complete the transformation.
Our thanks again to JK Decoration for taking on another big job. Jamie’s team worked their socks off on this one – and it shows!
