Every decorator loves a challenge, and Rachel Bates of Bates & Misons in Chard had been waiting her whole career for a real “bucket list” job that’d let her show off all of her skills.
A very small space, an unbelievably complex illustrated wallpaper pattern and no margin for error would be hard enough for any decorator. But add in fuse boxes, an archway, plus a number of other features to work around, and Rachel had her work cut out!
Rachel needed to ensure the wallpaper pattern lined up and matched throughout the hallway, keeping it centred in the homeowner’s eye line so they see the main features as they walk down the staircase. And to pile on the stress, the client didn’t have the budget for any extra rolls. No pressure!
Using the job as an opportunity to showcase her skills with careful lining, pattern matching and seamless joins, Rachel created an inspirational room that shows just what a Dulux Select Decorator can do.
