The painters are foreign born and one is smoking hot. I imagine Bulgarian, just for my own fantasies, but I really don't know, perhaps Eastern European at least. I've never seen such professional painters in my life and they are fastidious. Twice we had to leave our door open for five hours on Saturdays as paint dried on our door. While some floors have unpainted doors as residents are overseas for extended periods, fortunately our floor doesn't have any and and all doors have been painted, most twice but some only once, but visually it makes little difference.
This will be the third carpet on the landings since we have been here and we are rather worried about the design, although similar has been used in local Art Hotels. As I type, it is being woven by machines here in Australia.
We love the new paint colours and generally everything else that is being done. Here are a few photos as work is in progress. I will show you the photos of the new in time.
This was the old style of lamps at the lift, still on the ground floor.
The new, later painted the same colour as the walls.
The old LED lamps.
And the new.
No need for extra lighting. Switches blanked off. Pity they weren't removed.
