Although it doesn’t feel like it, Summer 2016 is fast approaching and this is the time of year to go BOLD!

This new exciting trend brings paint in to the limelight, from simply painting furniture legs a different colour to creating a dip dye effect for your walls.

Here are 5 ways to go BOLD with Paint for Summer 2016

Wow Walls

Although the “Feature Wall” is still hugely on trend, it is becoming more & more popular to create something quirky with paint rather than simply choosing a wall covering.

Fabulous Furniture

Try something different with your furniture by painting each item differently (known as colour blocking). It’s so easy to do but gives great impact!

Wonderful Woodwork

So often when decorating we use white for all the wood work…how drab! Try something different even if it’s just painting all the woodwork a deeper shade than the walls. If you want to be really out there, try painting the door frames in a bold colour or this quirky idea of painting half the door with a pop of colour.

Step In Style

Wondering what to do to brighten up your staircase? Even if the rest of your house is completely neutral, paint the rainbow at the heart of the home for some impact!

Perfect Patterns

Geometry & Angles are another hot trend this year and so easy & effective to do with paint…all you need is Masking tape (or “Frog” tape for precision) I love this illusion of a shining light with the metallic paint! But there are so many things you could create give it a go!!
