Orangery redo – Final version from Belgian Pearls

We spend a lot of time on our blog talking about green building, energy efficiency, and the positive attributes of San Marco USA mineral paints. You know like no petroleum usage, true low voc content, multiple European certifications and technical superiority. But every once in awhile it’s great to stop and just appreciate the beauty that the product produces. Our friends at the Belgian Pearl Blog just finished their lovely orangery and it is simply beautiful. They used lime wash. They didn’t use San Marco USA products but dare we say you can achieve this look with San Marco USA and it will be better? Well at least comparable...

Orangery redo – Final version

 

I am pleased to share with you today the pictures of the finishing part of our orangery-redo. The pictures are taken by me with a cybershot Sony camera, so forgive me for my unprofessional photographie.

Enjoy!

The existing sofa is slipcovered with the identical linen as the upholstery of the new large sofa opposite.

The color of the lime paint is much warmer than the flat cool grey painted walls before.

At the upper part of the chimney mantelpiece we hung a group of antlers.

To obtain a more straight and clean look, I have chosen for a fixed upholstered large sofa.

I just love the color of my antique vase I placed on the chimney piece.

The orangery is much warmer, lighter, much airier and more peaceful than before. Aren’t you agree?
