From nine to five I stare at pictures of stunning interiors. Perfectly styled rooms, sky-high ceilings and impeccable wooden floors. It’s all part of the job. Having worked at Paint Place for over a year, I’ve posted these beautiful images on social media, incorporated them in ads for magazines and sent them to stores to use as inspiration. I’ve even explained how customers can easily achieve these looks in their own home.
So I think now might be the best time to fess up…
There’s nothing quite like a Spring project to revitalise your home with something new and totally unique to uplift your space.
Painting made easy. Adding fresh vitality to your home is so simple to achieve, and can be done in a very creative way with the furniture you already own, all in just one weekend with a can of paint.
So much of what we buy these days is mass-produced and quite often doesn’t last the test of time. Sometimes it is worth looking at an older piece of furniture to consider restoring or re-purposing it for something new.
A few years ago, white walls were all the rage when decorating a home. The thought process was that white paint acts as a blank canvas, while also being a ‘safe option’. While all this is true, there is no need to be afraid of using colour as a backdrop in your home.
There’s no better time than the new year to get a bit daring with colour. With most of the areas in our home remaining fairly neutral in design, introducing bright accent colours is a successful and affordable way to breathe new life into a space. But where do you start with introducing these tones so that they suit your home’s current design aesthetic and don’t cause too much visual disruption?
Sadly, not everyone is blessed with a large home to call their own. The good news though, is that even the smallest of spaces can still look amazing if you whip out a few of these nifty design tricks. These ideas are easy to implement and won’t break the budget either, which at this time of the year is a very welcome piece of news!
Outdoor entertaining is what summer is all about, but if you’ve got an exterior space that feels anything but ready for guests, you’ll need to give it some TLC in preparation for impending visitors. The good news; even a small space is ripe for a rejuvenation – and you don’t have to do a lot to give this zone some wow factor!
There’s nothing more exciting than getting stuck into some DIY projects as Christmas approaches. Making your own designer gems to display at home gives your space a unique point of interest and is sure to wow family and friends when they visit.
