Breathe life into your dining space with plenty of fresh greenery. Add interest by displaying pot plants at different levels – a couple on the floor and a pair on a raised stool. Finally, contrast earthy stoneware with soft textures in a faux-fur rug, sure to keep toes warm as evenings draw in.
Ready to entertain in style? Here’s how you can get this luxurious look in just two days:
Roller & tray
Step one: Saturday morning
Clean your walls using a wet sponge to avoid dirt or dust ruining your paintwork.
Step two: Saturday afternoon
Lay down your dust sheet to protect your flooring. Using a roller, paint your walls in Nutmeg White, making ‘w’ shapes for the best and quickest coverage. Leave to dry.
Step three: Sunday morning
Measure and mark out the space behind your table using a step ladder to reach the ceiling. Rub chalk along a length of string. Stretch the string across the wall and ceiling then secure it with masking tape at each end. Check the string is straight, then ping it to leave a chalk line across the wall. Remove the string and mask tape along your perfectly straight lines.
Step four: Sunday afternoon
Again, lay down your dust sheet to protect your flooring – particularly the section beneath the ceiling area you’re painting. Fill the marked space with Pressed Petal, leave to dry then apply a second coat. While the paint is still slightly wet, peel away the masking tape to reveal crisp edges.
