how to style the look

1 Take to the walls! Try your hand at a feature wall, a quicker and more budget-friendly option to painting a whole room. We love the scallop design above, or you could get more creative with a detailed mural to extend the jungle theme. 2 For a fun and playful children’s bedroom, choose a palette of primary and secondary colours to create a lively scheme they’ll love. 1 Blue bedrooms promote calm but they also provide a great canvas for more daring colours to shine. Add pops of pink and mustard to warm up the shade and make things cosier. 2 Don’t believe the old saying ‘blue and green must never be seen’! Houseplants look great against a blue backdrop and add to a serene vibe.…

we've made each room come alive with colour

‘ The kitchen was a real slog to renovate but now it’s the room I’m most proud of, and I didn’t pay a penny to a tradesperson’ MY STORY After graduating from university, Marcus and I decided to move to London. We found this two-bed flat and although it was in a good state, it wasn’t really to our taste as the decor was all white and grey. The garden really sold it to us though, so we snapped it up and moved in February 2020. The bathroom was first on our to-do list. We hired a bathroom fitter just two weeks after moving in as the existing scheme was pretty dire. It took a couple of weeks and ended up being a bigger job than we thought, so when the time came…
