Space is the real luxury

First day in my new office

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.

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.
