Smart dining room: Navy & Shell
For a look which is bright by day and atmospheric by night, try Navy blue on the walls and creamy white and beige Shell on the ceiling and woodwork.
Calming bedroom: Mist / Snow / Shell
A relaxing bedroom needs warm, gentle and soothing colours. Mist is a contemporary mid-grey which works beautifully on walls. Combine it with Snow white on the ceiling and Shell on the woodwork. Add a pop of colour with your choice of fabrics and bedlinen.
Moss is a cool green-grey that works well in all spaces and looks particularly good with plants.
Study: Old Rose + Smoke / Silver Birch / Snow
For a calm and dignified workspace, choose Old Rose for the walls. Paint shelves and storage units a strong, deep grey like Smoke. A warm and rich grey like Silver Birch looks great on the woodwork. Finish the ceiling with Snow white.
Ground floor colour flow: Cactus / Moss / French Grey / Lily / Snow
It's a common mistake to think of rooms in isolation when you’ll have views from one room to another indoors. When planning your revamped interior design, consider creating a flow between rooms using a selection of hues positioned next to each other on the colour wheel - for example a blue, then a navy, and a third colour that’s either a mix of the first two or an accent, such as turquoise.
It's been a long year, but now it's time to explore the interior design trends for 2021!
Interior design is an art form which improves the comfort and beauty of your home (or even just one room). The colour scheme, lighting, accessories, furniture, and other details affect how your home looks and feels.
As a new year approaches, many people will be thinking about new beginnings. For some, that will mean buying a new home. Here are some tips to ensure your own home looks great so you can sell it fast!
For many people, Christmas is their favourite time of the year. Well it is mine too! I love the atmosphere created by the decorations and the lights. If it was up to me, I would keep the Christmas tree up all year round!
Every year there are new trends and different styles of decorations, from Nordic to country to minimalist.

I find getting things out of my head and onto some paper can be really beneficial to my state of mind. It means I don’t need to use precious brain space remembering it or fretting.
I’m a bit compulsive about keeping lists, to-do lists, shopping lists, things to remember etc. I can pretty much make a list about anything.
But I tend to forget to write down my thoughts and feelings because it takes a little more effort than simply writing a list. And for some reason I always think I need to be formal when I’m journaling, as if anyone is going to read it but me! 😀
How many of us have a special place at home or in the garden to relax, read, jot down your thoughts, listen to some music - or just daydream? I guess not so many, so lets change it! Give yourself a special gift and create your own cosy corner.
