I went to the most gorgeous press event for interiors at B&Q earlier this week. They were showing off their stunning colour range and what they have in store for SS16.
It is all about being creative, trying new things, incorporating trends and having fun. I loved the ideas they shared. Let me show you around.
First of all I was shown their lovely use of paint to make fabulous geometric shapes on the walls. very cool and a really inexpensive and fun way to acknowledging current trends without spending a fortune. they introduced me to frog which apparently give super easy and super straight ages without you needing to use a stencil.
On to the children room and the lovely hand crafted storage boxes and painted stripes made this a fun and funky children’s area. B&Q have a huge amount of how to tutorials on their B&Q you tube channel If you fancy a little go at making storage yourselves, they assured me it is easier than you would think!
Over in the garden area I was hugely impressed with their easy hook up wall planters that gave so much more space to limited garden.They had used spray paint to add a little colour to planters and had simply construed the wall frame. They tell me black in the in colour for gardens this year.
B&Q were also showcasing the colourcourage paint range designed by he amazing colour artist Lars Contzen. Oh you just have to see this colour range inspired by Lars’ travels in search of the perfect colour. It is high quality, unusual and has a lovely chalky matt finish. There are over 60 colours in the range.
B&Q were also showcasing their Kasbar range of cushions and accessories which I loved with their subtle but effective patterns. The Kasbar collection is a nomadic trend-inspired collection and a really current look
Last but not least it had to be the kitchen. B&Q are renowned for their kitchens and do them so well. I love this quirky look!
Do check interiors at B&Q they have so much to offer and some really inspired uses for colour and decorating
