    "We're really pleased with the excellent work done by your crew. They were fast, efficient and easy to work with. Our garage is not flooding for the first time in six years thanks to the new down spout and paintwork."

  • Choosing The Right Color For You

    Are you thinking about painting a room in your house? Tired of looking at the same colored walls? Why not change it up, and choose a color that fits you! Whenever someone asks me what my favorite color is, I say dark blue because that is the color of my favorite shirt. This is always a safe bet to go on. Choosing the color of your wall should be decided not on what colors you like necsesarily, but what colors you wear consistently. Now don't take my word for it, if you want to be a little funky and chose a color you've always wanted then go for it. Check out Better Homes and Garden, where  they give us some great color combinations and ideas.

    Plum + Sand

    Warming up a color scheme can be as easy as adding a few new accessories or embellishing those you already have. In this snug bedroom, neutral basics -- a dark wood bed frame and nightstand, tan walls, ivory chair, and duvet cover -- cozy up with plum accents in the rug, blanket, pillow, curtains, and art. Purple can represent either cool or warm parts of the color spectrum, depending on the hue. Look for shades of purple that have a slightly red hue to pull out the warm tones in a room.

    Chocolate + Rose

    The romantic atmosphere of this living room gets its personality from pink accents and playful pattern mixing. The room is anchored by warm brown walls trimmed in pale pink, a foundation that helps balance the vibrant colors and patterns. The turquoise rug is an invigorating color that complements the dusty pink sofa and green and white chair. The muted shade of aqua in the rug combined with its floral pattern helps create the room's romantic and slightly glamorous look.
