The Princess room

Tracy Rutherfurd

My favourite guest room, with it’s french Blue antique wallpaper, boasting little cherubs. A beautiful white marble fireplace, painted ceiling and double balcony. I didn't have to do much to get this bedroom looking beautiful. The floor had several beams missing which Nic has finished. My job was to take all the grime off the walls and floors. I left the original paintwork around the skirting and doors but will paint the outside next year where the paint has flaked off. Another big paint job to the furniture, using milk paints and a gold wash to show off the carving. i found the Italian armoire in a junk shop and is one of my most favourite pieces. The birdcage was found at an early morning flea market.

 i loved this room immediately even with its 50 years of dust and neglect. The lovely French doors with their solid metal Cremone bolts.
