As you know, I have agonised about the hall and what to do with the floor there for some time. My parents went to a lot of trouble to get the hall carpet laid flat and true and put plywood under the underlay to make it as perfect as possible. Trouble was, although it was very good quality carpet that had been laid to perfection, it was just not my thing, peach never has been, sure you could call it coral or something but all I see is peach. Peach has been on my ‘no way never, ever’ colour list since someone of my acquaintances had the misfortune to have a full on peach bathroom, from shower curtain with frills to the toilet paper and everything else too, there was probably peach scented spray in there, undoubtably from Marks and Spencer. The person in question did not inherit this, they chose it, no idea why.
Back to the hall, it is now white, the colour of the floor has been chosen and I will show you the final result soon, it has not even been finished yet! By the time a little girl I know is hosting her birthday party here, on Saturday, it will be all new and shiny for little feet to tramp across on the way to the fun. Can’t wait!
Here are the before and half way shots for you, I wish I had taken the carpet out and lived with the plywood, really, it is so much better than the peach.
I am looking forward to sharing the photos of the floor with you, more than that, I am looking forward to a ‘peach free’ home, wonder if it will ever become the thing again? Not here, no way!

Gosh I am so with you on the peach! and it already looks a million times better with just the carpet gone, look forward to seeing your final decision with the floors. mel x
coming your way very soon, just uploading photos at last, x
Yep, I feel pretty much the same about peach! I bet it felt so good to pull up that old carpet. That clock is fantastic – imagine keeping it under a sheet for all those years. Much nicer to have it on display. x
Peach, no more, hooray.
We are deciding where to put the clock this time, probably not in the hall. We’ll find somewhere soon.
