Meet the Flintstone wall

We have entered the last two weeks of the project in Brussels. And the final shape and style are finally becoming visible. Two walls will have a Farrow and Ball colour (www.farrow-ball.com, light grey 17). The other walls will be a chalky grey white (www.flamantpaint.com, cool ashes 119). You can see a test run of that colour in the fourth picture down, next to the slate wall. I wanted an off-white to offset the slate and wood, but not a creamy colour. This grey-white complements the slate and the 'sludge brown' walls.
The new bathroom with internal window to bedroom and beyond that to the terrace. The wall on the left will be in white tiles, the back wall in slate.
And this is the first slate wall! It already looks great even though it still needs to be treated to bring out the colours.

Next week I will try and get a picture that shows the slate together with the steel beams in the ceiling. They are the same colour and when you enter the flat, your eyes are guided to the wall via the beams. It works really well.
The test patch of grey-white for the walls.
And meanwhile the radiators are being fitted in the floor. The parquet goes in tomorrow. 

More pictures next week...
