• The Du­lux Visu­al­izer app is fan­tas­tic! It’s es­pe­cially help­ful when de­cid­ing be­tween two colours, or if you need to add a sec­ond shade to your main colour. • Don’t be lim­ited to just one theme through­out your home; you could use a sin­gle colour on your skirt­ing boards to tie all the rooms to­gether. • It’s not nec­es­sary to add white to your paint to make it lighter; sim­ply choose the light­est shade on the colour chart. Go to the paint store and check out the colour cards – this will make it eas­ier to choose. • Keep your paint­brushes ‘wet’ by wrap­ping them in cling film while you take a cof­fee break. • Place a strip of foil over the rim of the tin when you pour out the paint to prevent it from be­com­ing clogged with paint. • Don’t be put off if, for ex­am­ple, you see a colour you like used specif­i­cally in a bed­room for a mag­a­zine shoot. Think big – it will prob­a­bly also look amaz­ing in a din­ing room!
