Oh, I feel for you. Are you at the "it can't get any worse stage"?!

Cornflower

Yes!

Oh, my... We're at a depressing stage where everything is almost put back after roof work... (no gutters yet, and lots of rain). My deepest sympathies.

Sarah

We own an old house in New England. It took a while, but we finally replaced the 40 or windows (along with just about everything else!) It's a dusty, disruptive process, but I think of it as an inconvenience more than anything. Enjoy the new windows.

It reminds me of an interview that Robert Macfarlane had with Roger Deakin at his house and learned that Deakin preferred doors and windows to be open so that nature could come in. Beautiful view it is too.

But it looks s beautiful and calm. Is the ceiling as high as it looks? fabulous x

Darlene

Oh dear...we replaced all the windows and a patio slider eighteen months ago. That's right, in December...in Canada. How crazy was that?!
It will all be a distant memory soon, Karen. By the way, your molding is to die for!

pamela

Such a sublime shade of blue.
Well done.

Cornflower

The worst is over, I'm glad to say.

Cornflower

We're very pleased with the results so far, Sarah (painting begins next week), and I'm sure it will have been worth the disruption and the mess.

Cornflower

As long as no birds come in ...

Cornflower

Yes, very high ceilings - which of course has a bearing on the price of curtains!

Cornflower

December! The men who were doing ours were telling me about how unpleasant a job it is in the winter - and Edinburgh is relatively mild. You must have been frozen, Darlene.

Cornflower

I do love the colour of this room and had mackerel (of all things) in mind when I chose it: those sea greens along with a large black marble fireplace and slate hearth!

I'm so glad to hear it (if very late, due to Internet disruption).
