|Spring is definitely here!|
|Yes! Rrrrip it out!|
When I have a migraine, (and I've had 3 of the blasted things in the last month,) I actually have to shield my eyes because the pattern is just too much.
It was thankfully not glued down, but just nailed at the edges. Now we can see what we have been guessing is underneath it.
|And look at the floor underneath!|
What were they thinking....
But very dark red, and that is the shellac coating that was used to seal the wood.
|Look at that colour...|
It reminds me of an early summer morning at the beach. Or the colour of a songbirds' egg.
And I love love love it....
|The light has changed in this room.|
By the way that darkness in the other room you can see? It is an expanse of the same dark bricks, right up to the ceiling. See how it swallows up the light!
I guess in the 70's they thought it was a stunning and modern feature.
|Horrible bits hiding under the carpet.|
At some later stage that will all be replaced by new carpet.
And a last Spring greeting for you!
