A Colour Cure (Trends) by Dulux Australia – issuu

I do love visiting the local hardware store and checking out paint chips. I cannot deny that I am a colour fan whether that be in my wardrobe or interiors.

Check out Dulux’s colour trend forecast for 2017 below.

Being a colour fanatic I am drawn to the bolder colours of the Chroma palette.

What do you think??

One thing I did notice is that maybe they jumped the gun a little as there wasn’t a single sign of Pantone’s colour of the year to be seen!!!

Naughty or Nice??? My Christmas Wish List for Home

And here we are again, slap bang in the middle of that crazy holiday season that is Christmas. It just keeps on sneaking up sooner and sooner, but that may have more to do with some of the big stores putting out their Christmas decorations in September, yes you read right, September.

Study Organisation – The Before and After

Study Organisation - The Before and After

Just as one project draws to a close and so another one starts.

Our master bedroom makeover is nearly at an end and so my focus has now shifted to our study / guest room.

As mentioned in my previous post about sofa beds (click here to get up to speed) this space needs to be multi-functional, it needs to function as a study, a guest bedroom and a second sitting room.

A bedroom chair bargain

So I know it’s been a while since my last update (click here to catch up), on my master bedroom revamp. Things moved along nicely and then we hit a wall (a freshly painted one LOL!!!!)
The main issue is the window dressings, but that’s a whole other episode. I’ll save that for later, I am not ready to talk about it yet.
