Happy New Year

January 14, 2014

Happy new year all!

Back to it last week in a big way, it’s my busiest month since being in business so no time to dwell or be depressed about getting back into the swing of things. Makes January so much easier as I really haven’t got time to think!!

So the a new year and 2014 feels like it’s going to be a good one, I don’t make any specific new years resolutions but one for me is definitely pushing myself out of my comfort zone especially when it comes to decorating, why don’t you go that step further you might surprise yourself.  I think it’s the year of being braver with your interior, out with the old, push the bounderies. For me beige is out and dark colours are in. Simply painting one of my rooms out in a dark hue, including the ceiling, totally changes the look. So I say for 2014 at least paint one room dark and see how it changes the feel.

As this is my first blog into the new year I thought I would start off easy and just get you all to start thinking how you can improve your interior. In these winter months your home is such an important thing to get right as we are spending more time indoors, snuggled up watching films, and a cosy interior helps so much more with this, turn the lights down and you never want to leave the space.

Also I’m predicting that colour will play a big part in interiors this year, especially the bold bright types! and they will be adorning our walls very soon, a brave thing to do and definitely pushing you out of your comfort zone, but hay hoe it’s only paint and can be painted over…right!!
Still adding a pop of colour in a chair or lamps could be a good starting point!

Here’s a few pics to inspire

Happy decorating

  1. Happy New Year.
    I agree, these months are tough to get through being stuck indoors, so I definitely think its important to have a space you can relax in. Interestingly with dark colours, I painted over my dark brown bedroom wall last year thinking it would open my room up if it was all light and the same – well, since then I’ve re-painted it dark as it looked so bland and souless!
    I think colour plays such an important role into how we feel. You don’t have to always get the paint out – try adding a new feature piece of Furniture into a room to create a strong focal point or pop of colour.


  2. Definitely agree with the dark walls, it’s a myth that painting your walls light or white makes it feel bigger, my newly decorated room at home is very dark and does not feel smaller at all. Agree that adding furniture is a great way to get colour into a scheme.
