Colour isn’t the only consideration when decorating kids rooms. The paint itself need to be tough and durable. Here we’ve used Easyclean Scrubbable matt with built in stainguard.
Tips: Introduce another fun element using colour by painting wooden furniture different colours.
The fireplace is at the heart of this cosy, spring inspired country living room. Shocking Pink” Breatheasy Matt makes it even more of a feature and introduces modernity to this otherwise traditional look. “Sunrise” and “Snowdrop” complete this look.
Tips: Rustic clay pots have a lovely warm texture. Dry brush with a neutral paint colour and display in a primed and painted bookcase for an interesting feature.
Hallways in period homes can easily carry strong colours, such as classical emerald greens. We’ve updated the theme and used “Up Beat”, a vibrant green with a modern twist. Complement with “Pure Brilliant White” Quick Dry Gloss to retain that classic feel.
Tips: If you pop of the lid off your paint don’t panic if it looks different to the colour card you picked it from. Paint in its wet state looks completely different until all the pigments dry out on your wall. Period homes were built to impress, so use wall space to its maximum advantage, combining modern vibrant colours with period accessories.
Sleek greys combine to create this stylish Film Noir look. A sophisticated look for modern apartment living. Use Breatheasy Mid Sheen “Cloud Burst”, “City Break” & “Spotlight” with “Slate Grey” Liquid gloss for woodwork.
Tips: Use a drawing pin, a length of string (measured to the radius of the required circle) and a pencil to create this look. Pin the end of your string where the centre of the circle is to be, tie the pencil to the other end and pull taught. Keeping the string tight begin drawing your circle. Paint inside the pencil line with a small paint brush, use a larger brush to fill the circle in. Never underestimate the tools and preparation you may need when redecorating – spending a little more time will save you money.
