Decorating Month

29th April 2021

As we listen to gentle birdsong and witness the emergence of nature’s vibrant colours – it’s clear that spring is the symbolic encapsulation of rebirth.

With the outdoors bursting with life, many will have the urge to revamp their inside surroundings – and, since April is Decorating Month, there’s no better time to ditch the old and welcome the new for 2021.

Sometimes knowing where to start on a decorating project can be daunting, but fear not; you needn’t be Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen to add a touch of style to your living space. We at The Pantiles know a thing or two about interior decoration – read on for our top tips! 

Get Painting

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. We recommend you take a somewhat daring approach and opt for a vibrant, bold or rich colour – and the best part is if you don’t like it, you can always repaint it!

Certain paints can be toxic, therefore it’s 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!

When adorning your walls with a gorgeous new colour, why not get the family involved and tackle one room at a time? It could end up becoming an excellent way to enjoy quality time with your kids! Pro tip: this year, Forbes says that green is a colour that shouldn’t be ignored!

Turning The Tables

Simply rearranging some furniture can bring rebirth to your living areas – but sometimes, a house requires a more drastic transformation. So To Bed 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 for the new decade! 

With working from home becoming the ‘new-normal’, there’s no better time to refine your office space. 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 new a wardrobe or bespoke kitchen units, this fantastic store is certain to have something for you.

Remember; the kitchen is the centre of your home, therefore it’s important to craft an environment that is both practical and enjoyable to live in. Poggenpohl’s Tunbridge Wells Kitchen Studio offers full service kitchen design and installation; visit them today and share your dreams – they will help transform conception to execution.

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 couches 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!

Breathe Life Into Your Home

Artwork is what helps 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!

Love Your Space

Now that you can see how simple interior decorating can be, it’s time to decide on your style, prioritise your rooms and get started! Your new home will look perfectly put together in no time – just don’t be afraid to try something new and bold, because we all deserve to “love where we live!”
