  1. Thank you for sharing this information about MAD ABOUT . . ., THE GREAT INDOORS PODCAST. It seems like they are offering valuable insights and tips for people who want to save money while designing their homes. It’s great to hear that they are exploring creative solutions such as hacking flatpack furniture and incorporating small amounts of luxe materials to achieve a high-end look. I’m sure listeners will find these tips helpful and practical.

  2. I listened to this episode and got excited that Howden’s were now selling to the public but it’s still trade only – any other ideas on where to buy a kitchen you can install yourself? Thank you

  3. Hi

    Just wondered if anyone has tested the new Farrow and Ball Dead Flat just released?
    I appreciate it’s only just come out.
    I have always avoided F&B because my decorator isn’t keen on it, and it doesn’t wear well.
    I usually use Little Greene which I really like.
    (Just about to start a big project and there is a Farrow and Ball around the corner).
    That won’t swing it unless the paint is as good as Little Green is. Someone has also recommended Zoffany.
    Any thoughts appreciated!
