BEHIND THE SCENES: a brush with fame!
So, can anyone guess who wins the title of Britain’s longest-serving interiors celeb? Kirsty? Phil? Beeny? Nope. Now about to enter his 50th year gracing our tv screens, the winner is…
Yes, that’s me (on the left!) with none other than the world famous Dulux dog, currently a hairy fellow named Spud who I met at Dulux‘s latest launch on Tuesday! Cool or what!? As well as celebrating 50 years of their brand icon, they were introducing their new innovations for 2011 and their prediction for the key colour for spring/summer 2011, the ever so slightly scary Forest Falls. Although I’m not usually one for ultra-brights, there’s no denying that the colour looks great used like this.
Working with a colour as vibrant as this seems a bit daunting, but the trick is to give as good as you get and team it with equally bold shades. This green reminds me of a visit to the wonderful La Boca area of Buenos Aires a few years ago where all the houses in the main street are painted in amazing daring shades – and it works!
So go on, break all the rules!
