Albany’s top décor tips

Wallpaper can dramatically change the character of a room while hiding a multitude of sins.

Contrasting paint schemes can alter your perception of room size.

If you’re afraid of using bold colours, pick one wall as an accent and use complementary colours elsewhere.

Colour instantly adds interest and vitality. It’s the easiest part of the room to change and also the least expensive.

Adding window treatments can make a vast improvement, and using rich fabrics will add a luxurious feel to your room.

Don’t forget the details. Use cushions to soften a room and make it more inviting, transforming it into a space where you will want to linger.

Lighting is a key feature that is often overlooked, so avoid harsh fluorescent lighting.

Create a focal point of, perhaps, your favourite artwork. This can help bring the colour scheme together, making the room look complete and professionally finished. Whatever your budget, Albany can help you change your house into a home.

Colour trends for 2010

Many of the reliable creams and pastels that have gained favour in recent years will still feature strongly but here are a few colours and tones to watch for this spring: violet, aurora, turquoise, Tuscany, amparo blue, pink champagne, and eucalyptus.


Albany’s 2010 promotions commence on Friday March 19 covering deals on paint, wallpaper, fabric, blinds, and accessories with giveaways of paint, brushes, roller kits, and painting accessories.
