How to Create a Trend-proof Bathroom

The Househunter: Room by Room

7th September 2018

And we’re back with some more houses to poke around. After a summer off I have quite missed wandering round other people’s houses so are you ready to come and see this one in Suffolk, which feels like it has the perfect autumnal colour palette and might even have an element of the controversial Spiced…

dulux colour of the year 2018

Well it’s true that by now you might already know all about it but it’s still interesting not just because of the colour but because of the thinking behind it. Last year, as you may recall, it was Heartwood – a soft heathery shade that was all about feeling comfortable and secure at home. As…
