OneMK columnist Talie Mole, a city interior designer who appeared on … this year, is sharing her top tips for your home.

So you have decided to brush off the old and bring in the fresh new you. There’s nothing more exciting and shouts summer more then giving your home a cosmetic facelift

Before you head off down the shops or start filling your online basket. May I ask a question? Do you have a plan? No! then following my 3 tips to save you costly mistakes, wasted time and tears over spilt paint!

PPP, Plan, Paint and Purchase.

These are the first 3 questions you need to ask.

Q. Which way is the room facing?

This is an important factor as it can dictate your colour palate and lighting options.

A. South Facing

Q. What colours?

Its a good idea to stick to a 3 colour pallet rule. This does not mean you can’t add extra colours, its just a guidance to a good cohesive design. 1st colour to be the main colour such as wall, 2nd colour to be a large item’s such as a sofa and 3rd to be an accessory injection, like a splash of accent colour in a cushion

A. 1st Neutral/White 2nd Mustard 3rd Red

Q. What’s needed and budget forecast

This is probably one of the most important bit of information you need to note. Unless you have infinity pockets, then you will need to work out what you need to purchase and the trades you need to use (e.g. Decorator). This will give you a budget to work to. No use buying a cushion costing £55 when the entire cushion budget is £65!

Testimonials

My experience in buying a home was an absolute joy!  I had heard about other companies and all the horror some of our friends experienced.  Barry Evans, our Agent, was entirely dedicated to finding us what we were looking for in a new home.  He offered advice when we really needed it and he was a great listener and above all, he was always available! We even closed a week early!  We are “SOLD” on Barry and KW!
