Give me sunshine ……….



Why not give a room a quick blast of colour and transform it very cheaply from drab to clean and bright – as with fashion trends yellow is a big home trend and I feel this is a great colour to use on maybe one area to add some drama …….

Maybe paint a built in wardrobe in a bedroom or add some yellow wall paper to accent a back wall – or do the bathroom and keep the accessories white.

The shades in paint run from the subtle to the bold …..
So here are our favourites ……..
Colours by B&Q Ella Wallcovering Yellow 10m £12.98 per roll. (B&Q)

So for the statement wall with yellow this wall paper by B&Q is perfect with big blowsy flower heads and a subtle background.
Colours by B&Q Silk Paint Lemon Fizz 2.5L £12.98 (B&Q)

This paint Lemon Fizz is for interior walls and ceilings and can be wiped clean.
B&Q One Coat Matt Paint Lemon Ice 2.5L £15.98 (B&Q)

This is perfect for one day Bank Holiday jobs as it covers in one coat and helps surface imperfections, made for walls and ceilings.
Colours by B&Q Silk Warm Yellow 2.5L £12.98 (B&Q)

For a warmer tone this Warm Yellow is perfect on walls and ceilings.
Crown Solo Satin Summer Yellow 750ml £14.98 (B&Q)

For that woodwork this warmer tone is perfect and not too garish that you’ll hate it after a few months.
