Julia's styling tips

  • Use the colours in an artwork as inspiration for your palette. And remember, statement bedding, or a rug can act as artwork in a bedroom too.
  • For a fashionable, tonal effect, use the main wall colour in a different strength on one two or three other elements in the room, such as a desk chair, shelves or a bedside table.
  • If you’re cautious about using a bold colour on the wall, paint a smaller patch first and live with it for a few days. If you change your mind, you can simply paint over it and choose something more low-key.
  • A teen’s room needs to multitask – include a comfortable bed, sturdy desk and chair for study, somewhere to relax with friends and adequate storage.
  • Give the bed an on-trend ‘undone’ look; layer it with a duvet, sheets and pillow slips from different sets, and finish off with a medley of comfy cushions in a variety of colours and fabrics.
  • Add a floor rug that to anchor the scheme and provide softness underfoot. Dimensions are key; it should be big enough to connect with one or two pieces of furniture in the room, and not so small that it gets lost in the space. Look for a style that picks up on the key colours in the scheme.
  • Include greenery; a beautiful trailing plant or two on the desk or shelves will bring nature into the room and freshen the air.

Table

  1. Prepare the surface by applying 1 coat of Dulux 1Step Prep Water Based.
  2. Start by cutting in around the edges of your furniture piece.
  3. Apply Dulux Aquanamel to the surface using short, horizontal brush strokes.
  4. Once you’ve completed an area, while paint is still wet, lightly smooth over the painted section with long brush strokes. Do not reload the brush when you do this, a few strokes should be enough to smooth the surface.
  5. Allow 2 hours to dry, then give the surface a light sand with 400 grit sandpaper and repeat for a second coat.
  6. Repeat the above steps for a second coat.

 

 

Dulux Aquanamel Gloss

Dulux Aquanamel can be used in place of traditional oil based enamels, which not only saves time, but has the added benefit of paintwork not turning yellow with time.
