So you can see a little more of the detail here, some of the colours and shapes building up gradually.
Since last posting, there’s been paint, wallpaper and more tiling. The wallpaper is so subtle that it wont show up greatly here; I’ll try to remember to take some close ups.

The most daring dash of colour comes on the main wall. I think it really emphasises the space in the apartment:

Currently it’s sanded and the surface has been beautifully prepared for the colour that is to come (a deep flat green).
Here’s a long shot:

And looking back:

Those two ‘mini-walls’ to the side will enclose a floor-to-ceiling cupboard which will be installed between them.

Here’s the study:

The big box is currently housing my bath, although I’ve had to return it as it wasn’t finished properly at the factory. Ho-hum…more delays until the new one arrives…

That piece of wood on top of the box will hold the bathroom sink (see an earlier post for a drawing of how this will look). It cost me the earth and I hope it’s worth it. I’ve just been coating it this weekend for waterproofing, etc.

And speaking of the bathroom, here’s where we’re at:

This is the view from the bedroom into the bathroom:

And finally, the bedroom:

Only a very short amount of time left, or so I’m told…I’ve become used to my contractor’s very loose definition of a deadline.
