Being Decorator Prepared Is Half The Battle

Most folk feel inhibited when they need to start the annual decorating project.  For some reason, most families associate decorating with spring time.  That burst of warm sunshine seems to bring out the domestic god or goddess in most od us.  It’s very easy to get carried away with a new project by buying colours of paint and the brushes but not the cleaning and preparation materials.   Modern thinking would include the suggestion to create a Mood board for the room you pklan to transform  This involves a schematic if your own room with colour samples for the walls and any feature walls.  Pictures of furniture you would like ad furniture you curently have, any rugs and carpe colourways and moveable artefacts like pictures or table lamps and floor standing lamps.  It’s a great idea to practice the layout in a small size, that way you can try swapping pieces to suit the sunlight or shadows they create.  Keeping up with the cleaning as you go is a brilliant system as nothing makes you feel more defeated at the end of a session than to face the clearing up at the close of play.
