5 Decorating Ideas to Refresh Your Home This Year


1. Ice Cream Shades

This year, we’ve noticed an increasing trend towards soft pastels and ice cream shades when it comes to interior decorating. With the UK weather being even more gloomy than usual this year so far, why not try brightening up your surroundings with playful gelato colours inside or outside of your property? Accessorise your garden with a furniture set in a mix of colours or choose your favourite ice cream shade for a feature wall in your kitchen.


2. Blue Tones

Painting interior walls blue have always been a popular choice amongst our domestic customers in Folkestone and the surrounding Kent. Refresh a room in your property with the latest trending shades of blue paint, from an inky blue or a deep navy to a light soft blue or a bold teal. If you want to use blue in a subtler way, pick vases, lanterns and other décor pieces in beautiful shades of blue.


3. Gold Features

For homeowners wanting a glamourous look, a touch of gold works particularly well. Try introducing a hint of gold with different features for an elegant feel, such as a small gold coffee table in the centre of the room and gold curtain rails. Simple gold accents such as these give a subtle, sophisticated feel to a room.


4. Vibrant Colours

One of the strongest interior design trends at the moment, mimicking current fashion trends, is bright colours that pop. If you’re unsure about painting and decorating walls in vibrant colours, we recommend that our customers in Folkestone and the surrounding Kent areas try adding a pop of vibrant colour in the form of cushions, curtains or a blanket or rug.


5. All White

What better way to refresh the look of your property than with white? An all-time favourite classic colour, try reviving the exterior of your home by having it painted in a fresh white shade. Not only will this make your property look smart and clean, but will immediately add kerb appeal which can increase the value of your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers.
