From what I can gather Lucy is taking no prisoners back in the homeland, in getting as much import as she possibly can as to what is de rigeuer and en-trend or just plain common or naff as far as wooden flooring her mansion is concerned from Darrell, as the Kelly Hoppen the Queen of Interior Design was unavailable …….. and too expensive!
Darrell says he is a touch weary, but he is determined not to be found wanting in the click and lock, engineered oak department.
……. And so, after six and a half hours of intense errring, ahhhhing and ummmming, and not a little comparing and contrasting he, Lucy and Nigel finally emerged, from his flooring emporium of choice, blinking into the daylight and clutching the chosen three samples to be hopefully whittled down to “the one”!
Poor Nigel said that he had almost developed a squint with all the effort, adding, but not wishing to upset Darrell, that to him, they all looked exactly the same!
Darrell in full artistic flight replied that it maybe so to the uninitiated such as Nigel, but to the sensitive, expert eye the differences between each one were immeasurable. He had his preferences, but at the end of the day the final choice would have to be Lucy’s, he could only be her flooring guide (as opposed to Sam, Derek Acorah’s spirit guide!)
