First day in my new office
When stripping off the old wallpaper a blue layer of paint caught my eye. Was this the paint the first residents of this house – my great grandparents – had used? Whether or not, I decided to be inspired by the old layer of paint and paint my office blue, in a different technique, though.
But before I could even think of painting the walls I had to strip the old poorly pasted wall paper from the ceiling. Plus I had a specialist grind and oil the wooden floor.
Then the walls were painted white with a linseed oil and clay-based plaster effect paint. On top of this I applied four layers of tinted glaze.
Now I am sitting in my office between high-tech gear and vintage furniture. On the wall art works by Ute Spingler. This is truly luxury.
