I have attached the modified walls and wallpapered the rest of the corridor. I'm still working on the staircase trims, the final color will be the dark mahogany you see in the picture, I am thinking about doing the same for the doors.

The living room and dinning room will be combined together in the same room, with this mod the room is now big enough to acomodate a seating area + a 6 seat table and chairs. I've primed the walls of this room in a dark color because they will be covered by wood pannels, not wallpaper.

I've decided to try spackle, first time working with this material so I am winging it a bit. I am planning on using cast decorations on the ceilling and was afraid they would be too heavy on the template, so I decided to try to smooth the surface and glue them directly (electricity will run under the floor templates). Having some problems with the plywood, the lines you see are from the wood surface. I think I will have to apply a thicker layer for this to work, just not sure how that's going to work with the plaster on top... never tried to glue anything into spackle. I will probably also need to glue the wall from upstairs before I finish the ceiling, I've acidentaly covered up too much of the tabs lol.

Using wood panels will really compliment the paper in the hall Ashley and I like the idea of a 'decorated' ceiling. Whenever I've glued to a ceiling I use the same woodworkers PVA and support by 'struts' for a couple of hours!

Thanks Mike, I was thinking the same... also I might have spent too many hours looking at pictures of real houses... and being a bit too ambitious lol. I will try to cut the pannels myself. I will also glue the decorations with PVA glue, just hope the spackle won't crack with the weight... it's one of the things I don't like about this scale, everything feels so heavy I'm afraid my usual methods might not work lol.

This is going to be so opulent but in a very sophisticated way... You are making fantastic choices. :D

Thank you :) I hope so, I will try to get as close as I can to the period references I'm using.
