v     The most cost efficient way to change the décor of your home is with paint!

v     To cosy up a large room, use darker tones and use a touch of the wall colour in the ceiling paint.

v     Don’t fight a small dark space – go with it by painting it a dark moody colour like an aubergine and add some brilliant lighting.

v     A long skinny room will benefit from having a dark end wall to bring it forward and make the room look less long and narrow.

v     Use cool blues, greens and turquoise in a bright sunny room and use warm reds, oranges or pinks in a cool room.

v     White always makes a ceiling look higher.

v     Look for colours in nature for inspiration.

v     If the walls have a rough surface, using a matt or textured paint will disguise the imperfections.
