Home Living : December 1st 2009
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, December 1, 2009 9 Summer's fresh colours will lift your table Summer is at our doorstep and brings us beautiful, bright sunny days and warm nights, perfect for outdoor entertaining. This season Dandi will be decorating with blues and sandy neutral tones, that are characteristic of the cool breezes of the beachside. Dandi's gum leaf design uses neutral tones of macadamia and wisteria blues; these are ideal for the season's colour palette. For casual dining use a runner and placemats and let the texture of your outdoor table come through. Decorate your table settings with native flowers and leaves. The dusty blues and waxy leaves complement the neutral tones and textures. If you're after something a little bolder, then simply interchange the neutral tones for a vibrant red and fill your scenes in summer's brighter colours. The mix of blues and reds has a nautical feel to it, perfect for a summery day out on the harbour or a picnic at the beach. Nothing does this better than a Dandi's Bloom design. It's bursting with colour and is sure to make a great impression with your guests. Use an oilcloth tablecloth with white or wisteria blue napkins. Carry on the nautical palette and use white or blue crockery for a clean and fresh look. dandi.com.au ............................................ Easy coats » ADVERTISING FEATURE DIY makeovers remain popular with consumers. Master Distributors, suppliers of speciality paint brands such as Plasti- kote, reports strong sales in aerosol enamels and metallics, with some of the most popular DIY projects being children's bedroom makeovers, furniture revamps and bicycle updates. While saving money appears to be the prime motivation, Master Distributors' research reveals that consumers still want a professional finish. Plasti-kote brand manager Karen Bowen says consumer demand for more sophisticated information on pigmentation levels, environmental aspects and place of origin is unprecedented. ''They want assurance they will achieve a perfect finish every time -- with the least amount of skill -- and that it will retain its original appearance for years to come,'' Ms Bowen said. ''This is where the Plasti-kote comes to the fore. Made in the US, it contains more pigment and resin, and less solvent and propellant than others.'' The Super Enamel spray paints come in more than 40 colours, from soft neutrals and fresh pastels to more vibrant hues. The full range is available from hardware outlets and paint specialists. plasti-kote.com.au HOMELIVING built-in WARDROBES FACTORY & SHOWROOM Unit 1, 183-185 McCredie Rd, Guildford 9632 5444 Lic.
