Avoid colour on walls in a small room with­out nat­u­ral light to be used as an of­fice

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - HOME -

you can’t just chop and change, and usu­ally re­quire a pro­fes­sional to help with. To be hon­est, I don’t think it’s worth spend­ing a few thou­sand rand on a de­signer throw when cheaper brands of­fer fan­tas­tic op­tions (that of­ten look bet­ter, in my opinion). That R1 000 would be much bet­ter in­vested in a state­ment pen­dant light that you’ll love year after year and is far more likely to bring the wow fac­tor to your space than a throw.

QWe just re­did a small bath­room in all white and I think we need colour some­where. We haven’t done the van­ity/sink yet. Do you have a sug­ges­tion? It’s an old farm­house, so I’m think­ing a warm-dark nat­u­ral wood. Paint­ing over the white walls is also at least in the mix of pos­si­bil­i­ties.

If you and your other half are butting heads when it comes to adding colour, how about tak­ing a monochro­matic approach in­stead? Adding black to con­trast with the white would be a great way to add some vis­ual punch to the space. Per­haps you could go for a black gran­ite van­ity? Or go for a white or pale gray van­ity and then add a matte black tap as a state­ment “pop”.

AQ AI like to change my house so that in au­tumn it feels cosy and in spring it feels fresh, but my friends think I am crazy to change the decor so of­ten. What do you think and do you have It’s to­tally okay to change your decor when­ever you wish. I also dec­o­rate sea­son­ally. Not in ev­ery room, of course, but in some. I of­ten re­paint a room for a new sea­son be­cause

In­vest in a pen­dant light that is likely to bring the wow fac­tor to your space.
