The four bedrooms have very individual looks. Three of them feature a dado rail with Resene ‘Quarter Rice Cake’ on the lower third of the wall, and the dusky pink Resene ‘Brandy Rose’, warm beige Resene ‘Truffle’ and earthy green Resene ‘Linen’ on the top. In the fourth bedroom, Kirsty has paired Resene ‘Quarter Rice Cake’ with a blue Eijffinger wallpaper from Resene.
Decorating is one of Kirsty’s passions. “It’s something I love to do, and – who knows? – maybe one day I will get around to doing a course in design. It’s a hobby I love at the moment.” She couldn’t have done it without the fabulous painter David Price, she points out.
Now that the interior is complete, she is focusing on welcoming B&B guests to the home. “I spent 25 years in hospitality and I have missed the people contact,” she says.
