'Were you drunk when you painted this room?' quipped the decorator, who just came over to give me an estimate on knocking down a few shelves and repainting a couple of walls. So there are a few splodges of green paint on my white ceiling, which I never got round to covering up the first time I painted the room, and yes, there may have been booze involved, but what’s a paint party without a few shandys?
After he’d given me the estimate and gone (it’s gonna cost me a 'ton', apparently), I decided to take a look at the Let's Colour Studio App for iPhone and iPad, which I downloaded a few weeks ago and never got round to using. I’ve just discovered that it’s packed with lots of useful masterclasses including ‘Tips for painting walls’ and ‘How to paint ceilings’! Would have been helpful a few years ago, but still good to clock it for the future.
The Dulux Let's Colour Studio App for iPhone and iPad is also great for choosing the perfect paint colours for the wall – you can take a photo of anything - a piece of fabric or book cover, for example - and instantly match it up to the Dulux paint library. It also suggests complementing colourschemes and you can order samples direct from the App to your door. It’s really quite addictive.
