Today I am back with an update of our living room redo.

Many of you emailed me to ask about the treatment of the floor and how to achieve that finish. I really hope that you all will understand that this is a delicate matter, since this is a trade secret of our craftsmen. Over the years our employees invested so much time and worked so hard on the perfection of wood treatments. It shouldn’t be fair of me to send this, just like that, into the world.

I do hope you will understand!

In my latest update post (HERE), I told you that the montage of the paneling was almost finished and that our employees only had to add the skirting boards, chair rails and corniches.

So this was all done last week.

This is how the room looks like today.

Standing in the entry hall, you won’t notice any change at the existing double door.Secret door 1Opening the door from the entry hall into the living room.

Next week the artist-painter will start to bring on the patina! I am sure this will change the room completely!
