Like many of us i'm sure you are currently battling the first few weeks of Coronavirus (Covid-19) isolation at home. A home decor paint set wouldn't have been top of the first week list. It flew by, gardening, a gleaming car or even a 'Deep Clean' of the house during multi-tasking entertaining the kids painting eggs.

But week 2 is here and the to-do list is running thin. If like me you have a wish list of jobs to do, but a rapidly reducing amount of suppliers able to stock you may be tearing your hair out right now!

Home Decor Design Inspiration

If Home Decor and DIY is top of your stave of boredom list right now your first port of call may be inspiration, in my opinion there's no better place for design guidance than Clerkenwell Design Week.

Just view their website and check out their list of designers, look each one up on instagram or the company website and marvel at the amazing interiors you deserve for your own homestead!

Painting like most jobs in life (sadly) is 90% preparation and 10% finish. Get the preparation wrong and the finish will suffer so you need the correct paint set.

You'll need some protective clothing (PPE) to keep you covered and safe from inevitable spills, some masking tapes and papers to protect edging and the right tools to get the job done! Of course you'll also need paint in your favourite internal shade or perhaps metal paints which differ (read on).
