What’s your biggest decorating 'DO'?
'Do use a tester, it’s so important in helping you decide on the right colour for your space as colour is impacted so heavily by light and the substrate you’re applying it to. You can easily get Dulux testers online to make that final decision a little quicker.'
What’s your advice to people wishing to introduce more colour into their homes?
'I always advise that when you move into a new place, start by painting the space white or off-white to begin with and then introduce colour gradually as you begin to get a feel for how you use the different spaces, how the light changes and which rooms you spend the most time in especially at certain times of the day. If you’re not happy with your colour selection, you can paint again for free with the Dulux Let’s Colour Guarantee.
What’s the best way to choose a colour to suit you and your home?
'I often think that a good starting point is to consider the colours you tend to wear in a fashion sense as chances are you are already very comfortable surrounding yourself in these hues on a daily basis. Also consider how you want the room to feel and what is the primary function for example if it’s a bathroom which you want to help wake you up in the morning and perhaps do your makeup or have a shave then having something light and airy is important. You can then test your favourite shade using the free Dulux Visualizer app which uses augmented reality to see how colours look in real time on your walls.'
