Transformation via paint !

I'm on the ball early this morning, I guess I should really be at the gym, It's all about priorities right ?
Ok well as promised here's some pics of the finished painting and decorating ! Just as a side note , We were going to go totally white and shabby, but we couldn't bring ourselves to do it !
This colour does make the rooms look smaller, but thats just an optical allusion, we still have the same amount of room, it just LOOKS cosey!

This colour is called Bracken Brown and just goes with all our wooden furniture, lots of wooden frames of family and some shabby chic bits and pieces. ( my mum once said that coming into our home was like a trip to the museum ! Whatever did she mean ? ) I guess I haven't really been able to really catch how dark the colour is in the pictures, it is really more like the colour of a good strong skinny latte !

Love your wall colour. Our SIL is also a house painter! He just finished painting the whole house inside when we decided to knock down a wall or two, so now he has just finished painting again.. similar colour but lighter. It goes well with your furniture etc.
