Ceilings are usually very plain. Painted white or off-white, they are the plainest feature of most rooms. However, they can provide an understated wow factor. For rooms where you are lying down and actually looking up at the ceiling, be it bedrooms (or perhaps living rooms if you like to lie horizontally on the sofa or in a recliner), bathrooms or in a massage / therapy room, an interesting ceiling can bring joy as well. Think of the ceiling as the fifth wall in the room – and it also requires creative decorating.
I love wallpaper and I’m delighted to see that not only is it still
fashionable for 2019 but there is a return to having wallpaper on all
four walls, rather than just a statement wall in a room. Yes, wallpaper
can be expensive but it warms up a room, wallpaper gives it depth and
interest, and it adds a touch of luxury. I wouldn’t put wallpaper on a
high traffic area of my home but I do find that a wallpapered room needs
to be redecorated less often than walls that are painted.

I’ve noticed a growth in the popularity of Christmas trees this year. Many people are putting up two trees: the artificial one they put up every year and a real tree. There’s also been a move towards Christmas trees with a difference too, many of which are wall hung so don’t take up any floor space. If you’re looking for ideas for an additional Christmas tree, do read on.
here is a video testimonial we received a while ago from Martin Campion. Martin posted a gardening job on Tradesmen.ie and was very happy with the result. You can see the video feedback below:-
As the fireplace is often the focal part of a room, it’s relatively easy to create a statement with relatively few decorations on the mantelpiece. It can set the scene for your theme for the rest of the house. As it’s a fairly small area, some sparkle and festive spirit will be created easily without the risk of overwhelming the room. Here are some ideas:-
