Just back from very busy London and press releases (I’ll show you the second one later). These are my photos from the B&Q Spring / Summer 2014 press show.
It was raining and pretty grey in London, but inside it felt like Summer. There were green plants in pots, garden furniture, lanterns, purple wheelbarrows (!) and barbeques. I know this is garden furniture, but really I would be quite happy with this rocking chair in my living room.
There were also cool lamps, more accessories than previously, new wallpapers and even kitchens.
I also really like these 2mm thin slate tiles. They would be fantastic for covering up uneven or tired looking tiles. They come in different colours and look very good.
I discovered a very exciting new product – Valspar paint. I know paint isn’t new, but there’s a new way of getting exactly the colour you want. You can bring in any colour and B&Q will match it for you. I have to say it makes choosing a colour a whole lot easier. So if you have a bag, a dress or a picture from a magazine that you really like and want to paint something in that particular colour – you now can.
I didn’t just take photos of course. I also talked on camera for the first time. It was really scary, but fun trying something new. Here I am on vine.
If you want to see more new items check out the Spring / Summer Look book.
I’ll show you more of what I saw in London soon.
