Colour Writing | Your Home and Garden

Three of my favourite things are interior design, colour, and glossy magazines. So you can imagine how excited I am to be able to bring all three of these things together - I'm working with Your Home and Garden as a colour writer, and my first feature appeared in the March issue which is out now.

This feature focusses on renovations, and how important it is to work out your colour scheme before you get started. As I said in the article, colour can dramatically change the feel of a home and express it's owner's personality. We bring you four very different colour themes to help you with your choice. Each theme includes paint colours chosen from the PPG Paints range, as well as tips and advice from me.

If you haven't already, make sure you pick up a copy of Your Home and Garden, it's packed full of inspiration. And keep your eye out for the next issue which will feature a new page, also written by me, called "Nook of the Month". Each month a little-used or under appreciated corner of a home will feature, and I'll share some ideas on how to use the nook in a new way.


  1. Great stuff, Vic! How nice for you to be recognised by such a lovely mag. Have put this on shopping list to buy later today. Rx

    1. Thanks Rachel. It's a great issue, you'll love it - some garden inspiration for you too :) x

  3. Congratulations Vic, it is so exciting the opportunities that arise for design blogger's. I am definitely going to buy this copy and read your feature. It looks fabulous and you are so good with colour. Well done!


It's lovely to hear from you. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes, Vic xxx
