Decorating the House

We've been having the house decorated in preparation for selling it when we move. The difference is stunning. So I thought I'd put up pictures of the first weeks work - the three bedrooms.

Here is the first bedroom - this one was originally not far different in paint colour, but it also had a floral border around the centre, and pink carpet. It looks much nicer now. In the second photo you can just see the orange carpet in the hall and stairs, just to give an idea of the colour combinations originally. If you squint you can also just about see a bit of the floral border that was around the whole top floor.

The inside of this cupboard was a pale green. The inside of the door was the same - most doors on the top floor were different colours on each side.

Now the next bedroom. This one was bright pink to start with (again with the floral border), with greyish carpet - there are a couple of photos further back on my blog from when I was making the curtain.

Lastly the master bedroom. Strangely I think this room looks smaller now - the others looked bigger. This one was blue cloudy wallpaper that was falling down, with blue threadbare carpet. The woodwork was bright aqua blue - including the wardrobe door and the inside of the bedroom door - the outside (which we saw the most often as it was usually open) was pink.

Don't you hate having to paint and carpet when you won't be the one to enjoy it long-term? Looks good. I especially like the cutie in the closet! But I expect she's not part of the sale.
