I’m reviewing the possibility of setting up an on-line interior design service. The idea is to provide interior design consultancy and advice for my long distance readers. This would include a mood board; colour and design schemes; suggested layouts and furniture and accessory options.
Black and white is a bold combination. It can be dramatic and glamorous, the epitome of sophistication! When designing a monochromatic or achromatic scheme particularly in an area such as a bedroom there are some important things to consider.
This post is part of my Ask The Designer series. Hi, I’d love to brighten up our kitchen as i find it quite dark.Its a kitchen/dining/living area combined. Its 25 ft by 14ft with terracotta floor tiles, solid ash kitchen units, black granite worktop,timber ceiling,timber blinds,cream walls with a feature colour on the chimney. I’m only changing blinds and wall colour at the moment(on a budget!)Any colour suggestions would be extremely helpful and my big question is should I paint the timber ceiling or is that risky???? Really grateful for any ideas.
This is the first post in my new of my Ask The Designer series. Ask me a question and I’ll do my best to answer it. Today’s question is from E in Tipperary who is looking for ideas for colour schemes for a babies nursery.
