First Ever ....Show & Tell Friday & Gray Painted Room!

My room has gone from this...........

To this in 3 days!.......

 There was a lot of painting to be done, thankfully I didn't do it! But hired a Decorator to carry the work out for me. I love it! The picture of the finished painted room was took in the evening, so light was not so good. The colour is Farrow & Ball's "Pavilion Gray" and the Gold Stripe is 1868's "Old Gold" along with Satinwood White for the fire surround and rest of woodwork.

Now the hard work for me will begin!
I need to make the Curtain's & have a Roman Blind made. Along with deciding what is going back in to the room??? I packed 4 boxes of Pictures & Ornaments & other things!
I do not want to just add everything back for the sake of filling a space! So quite a bit of sorting will have to be done in the coming months........Yes I said months! It is going to take me a while I think to find what I would like? I am NOT going to rush to fill this space! I will brows & shop & root out  finds that suit me & the room!

This is my first entry into "Show & Tell Friday"

Hi Lavinia,

The gray walls look GREAT! I can't wait to see how this room evolves.

I'll go over to the blog you mention and check it out. It's fun to see how other people decorate. I have a few pin boards dedicated to decorating - even have a color scheme board.
