What do you do when you suddenly work a lot at home during the Corona lockdown? Create a cozy workplace of course! After Justine had already painted her hallway upstairs in the cheerful colour Chalky CoralChalky Coral, it was tickling to tackle even more rooms. This time it was her husband Jos' office. As pleasant as it was to work together at the dining table, he still needed a place of his own.

Choosing a paint colour for the office

Time to pick up the Pure & Original colour chart again! Together we looked at which colour could be suitable for the office and Jos was immediately a fan of the colour HopHop. Now I had just seen this colour in the fantastic style house in London of the latest Colour Collection Upside Down and I was immediately enthusiastic.

 

Started painting immediately

In our enthusiasm, we couldn't wait to get started. That is why when we received the paint, we started masking and painting the first layer of paint that same evening. This first layer was already very opaque, but when Jos applied the second layer the next morning, the colour became even deeper and more matte Which was really magical to watch. We fell in love immediately, what a great color!

The magic of sunlight on the paint

The colour Hop, like the colour Chalky CoralCoral, is a colour that never seems the same due to the light. This ensures that the room has a different beautiful shade every time, depending on the sunlight. The only drawback is that Jos likes his office so much that he no longer comes to work with me at the dining room table. But that is also the only drawback!
