QI’d like to hire an interior designer but I don’t have hundreds of pounds to spend – what are my options?

K Reid, by email

A Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director at Dulux, has this advice…

Extensive market research has shown us that almost 60% of homeowners in the UK don’t think they’d be able to afford the luxury of an interior designer and, while we all love our homes, lots of us don’t have the confidence to re-design or update them just the way we want to. There is so much to inspire beautiful living spaces out there and sites such as Pinterest have helped us find and filter the looks we love, but without a best friend who just happens to be an interior designer, the choice can be overwhelming. So, we’ve created an online interior design service – Dulux Amazing Space, to help you to create the perfect home for you by connecting you to qualified designers who will deliver expert advice from space planning and storage solutions to furniture and finishing touches for just £75 per room.

About Your Home Magazine

At last we can kiss goodbye to the dark, dreary days of winter and look forward to the lighter, brighter days of spring. Easter comes early this year, so to celebrate we’ve put together some scrummy recipe ideas that are perfect if you’re having family and friends over during the Easter weekend (p.100). And, if you want to make it extra special, why not try your hand at our beautiful Easter craft projects to decorate your dining table too (p.60)? If you’re planning to make the most of the long bank holiday weekend with a spot of decorating, make sure you take a look at our brilliant eight-page spring trends forecast on page 36. We’ve picked the five hottest looks from the high street, so whether you’re drawn to laid-back coastal blues, eye-popping tropical brights or calming candy colours, you’re sure to find some inspiration for your new colour scheme. Sick of waiting for your other half to do the decorating? Then turn to page 66, where we’ll guide you step by step through the basics of tiling. I know the bank holiday is the time of year when many of you are ready to get back out in the garden. So on page 114, you’ll find our suggestions for which plants to include in your beds and borders to guarantee your garden is full of colour all year long – yes, even in winter! Finally, if like me, your pets are important members of your family, then make sure you read our low-down on pet insurance on page 18. Your furry friends will thank you!
