Just White?

Today was my first day off after a heavy work-week in the air. It’s high season and everyone is going on their holiday. Me? I’m juggling renovation and a full-time job. And Daniel has two.. Jeezes! Welcome to Chaos.

rot

I had stops in Molde, Tromsø & Harstad this work period so Daniel painted the ceiling and repainted all the white walls while I was gone. It seems like the white walls were not so white after all.. I should have known, that there is nothing called just «white» in the interior world. Our old shade had some sort of yellow hint to it, eggwhite or whatever the correct term is. We wanted pure white walls, the problem with that was that every single thing in the apartment was just that.. eggwhite. The skirting, windowsill, the sockets, the doors and even the whole kitchen fronts were eggwhite. With the freshly pure white walls everything else seemed dirty and yellow. So I had to decide; repaint or redo.

I have decided to paint the frames and windowsills shiny white. And I’m going to have a darker contrast color surrounding the kitchen fronts to make them more clean and white. I’m not quite sure what to do with the doors. We have 3, were one of them is the bathroom door that already has some water damage. So I think I might just replace them. We’ll see…

Tomorrow I’m doing my second coat on the contrast wall in the living room and Daniel is continuing on the floor. To be continued! 😀
