A bucket of paint is one of the most powerful tools in a DIY decorating arsenal. It’s one of the quickest and most gratifying ways to change a room’s appearance, without spending a lot of money. But before you start covering every inch of your walls, check out these creative and unconventional paint jobs that show a lot of restraint, but are all the more interesting for it. For under £100, you can craft a strong statement that's bold, unexpected, and totally makes a room.

White kitchens are more popular and they will always be timeless and classic. But colours are getting trendy, and more and more people are asking for bright accents in the kitchen. 

Coloured kitchen cabinets are good choice for someone, who is not afraid of colours. For those who prefer to keep cabinets white and simple, there is always a solution to go for a bright and coloured kitchen back splash. If this is also too much, then play around with furniture and lighting fittings. 

Wood is not reserved for only the floor. Wooden walls can add spiritual simplicity to that space behind the bed, the one we see every night right before we go to sleep, warm the living room or separate two different areas in the dining room. Sometimes adding just a little something to a room can completely change how it looks. Whether you want to give your home a bit of rustic charm, have a wall that’s in desperate need of a paint job, or you just want something different for your home d├ęcor, these walls are the perfect solution.


It is always nice to start the brand new week with some good design. Natural colours and materials are always the safest and the brightest option for the kitchen. Add some cool stools or patterned tiles to get the trendy look.

Yesterday we received a wonderful bouquet from Bloomon
They delivery those wonderful fresh spring looking flowers straight to your home, along with the vase;)
We like their taste, as their bouquets look stylish and fresh, without extra cheesiness of the shop flowers. Works perfect for home styling.

With a ‘less is more’ philosophy, their spacious designs allow each individual flower the chance to breathe – and shine. However, Bloomon encourages their customers to play around with the arrangement. They say their flowers will love your personal touch.

How it works.
First you need to choose a size: small, medium or large.
Secondly, you can choose how often do you want to receive your flowers.

Then your flowers will be carefully prepared for you...

and delivered to your home,
for you to enjoy.

One of the boldest color choices, red is thought to bring energy, strength, power and determination to its surroundings. It is also the color of passion and desire and in eastern cultures it is thought to bring good luck. In interior design, the color red is often used as an accent but seldom used as the main color due to its intensity. Decorating with red accents can be tricky, too much and it is overpowering while too little and the color becomes disconnected, but when done right red can take your decorating scheme to a whole new level.

1. Red as an accent

2.  Red looks cool on the bigger scale as well!

3. Combined with other colours. Such a great way to achieve powerful and energising interior!
