With Spring in the air it’s time to think about outdoor living, planting and gardens. It’s great to make personal touches within your space with your own design creations on plant pots. This can allow them to match a colour theme, follow a trend, label what’s in the pot or personalise them as a gift!

We love the design idea from Homedit with its modern geometric look and metallic colours.

For a plethora of ideas head to BalconyGardenWeb or have a look on Pinterest

All you’ll need is paint and, if it’s not outdoor paint then a good fixer spray or varnish will ensure it lasts and holds up to the weather. You can get plain pots from garden centres, IKEA, or try online at Hobby Craft or Baker Ross for great prices.

home: trend [ pastel kitchen ]

A big kitchen trend for 2019 is to feature pastel tones. This could be painting walls, using tiles or going full on with pastel cabinets.

The calming feel of pastels will also inject some fun into you kitchen and this can be achieved simply by painting some walls. If you get bored with it, then it’s easy to change.

Create some interest on splashbacks and tiling with pastel tones like blue, green and pink. There are so many shades and patterns available on tiles now, so you can be sure to find something you love.

With more and more options with kitchen cabinets online and in store, now is the perfect opportunity to design everything yourself from style to colour. A pastel pink or blue cabinet will work really nicely with pale wood and white for a fresh clean look.

For a more subtle take on this trend then add some pastel appliances like a fridge or toaster. Who needs to stick to black or chrome!
