Decorating Month 2023

18th April 2023

April is Decorating Month! Spring has sprung and Tunbridge Wells is awash with greenery, blooms and sunshine. With the outdoors bursting with life, many will now have the urge to revamp their interiors.

Sometimes knowing where to start on a decorating project can be daunting, but fear not; you don’t need to be Laurence Llewelyn Bowen to add a touch of style to your living space. Read on for some top tips on how to revamp your space this Decorating Month.

Colour Me Happy

The key to interior decoration is colour; red can bring warmth and intimacy to any living room, while grey can help to make a space feel calm and serene. Why not take a bold approach and opt for vibrant and rich colours this spring? The best part about painting, is that you can always repaint at a later date!

However, beware, certain paints can be toxic. It’s always important to choose an eco-friendly emulsion. We recommend Little Greene paints from Tunbridge Wells Interiors; a brand that is both environmentally-safe and varied in its selection of colours. Whether you live in a historic property or an ultra-modern penthouse – these paints are sure make your living space pop.

Changing Rooms

Simply rearranging some furniture can bring a different feel to a room. Sometimes, however, a house requires a more drastic transformation. And So To Bed at The Pantiles sell luxury beds, headboards and elegant furniture, whilst Choice Carpets and The Rug Shop offer quality rugs/carpets, flooring, curtains and blinds. All three stores are essential shopping destinations for those looking to rejuvenate their property.

Many of us work from home these days, so there’s no better time to refine your office space too. Are you constantly dealing with clutter? Consider investing in a new storage space that compliments your new aesthetic. Tunbridge Wells Interiors transform homes with their fitted furniture – whether you need a wardrobe or bespoke kitchen units, this fantastic store is certain to have something for you.

Of course, you don’t necessarily have to buy new furniture to change up your house. If you fancy something a little more challenging, why not try your hand at some DIY furniture upcycling. You can reupholster your favourite sofas and chairs with a new type of fabric to match your updated decor. As far as wooden furniture goes, you can also stain it from light to dark or vice versa. The world (and your home) is your oyster!

Picture Perfect

Artwork and Objet d’art are what help define the personality of the homeowner and their space. However, selecting the right pieces can be difficult. If you fancy delving into the world of art, we recommend a visit to Beumée. Whether you’re looking to purchase a work of art, or simply seeking inspiration; this wonderful gallery is sure to ignite your creative spark.

Yiju at The Pantiles specialises in Chinese furniture, decorative objects, lacquer ware and textiles. Stock includes beautiful period pieces such as tables and chairs, sideboards and dressers. They are also some exquisite jewellery boxes and fine ceramics dating from the Qianlong to the republican periods. YiJu is the perfect place for you to visit if you are seeking to add something a little different to your home.
