This was painted in the 17th century hall of a Somerset farmhouse which had previously been rather dark and dismal.
I used a soft yellow ground then distressed the panels with a raw sienna wash. Then I painted Florentine style foliage which I was inspired to do after a trip to Italy In November 2012.

We also supplied Queen iron pendant lights that were gilded inside and we refurbished the "mushroom" decorations with gold leaf.

The resulting effect is welcoming and joyful.
