Hi everybody, following on from yesterday’s super duper bedroom makeover post (and if you haven’t seen it yet, head on over now! I’ll wait), today I’m sharing my top decorating advice I’ve learned through the years. The most common questions I get asked are how to decorate with dark colours, because I know that scares the bejeezus out of a lot of people! So I share all my tips and tricks in the vid, but also yabber on about accessorising, working with texture and bringing in finishing touches and statement features. Basically a mini masterclass!

Oh and if you’d like to learn more, why not enter Hillarys’ competition to win a place on my design masterclass? They take place in my pad in London, and I give everybody the tour, share all my secrets and answer your biggest decorating quandaries. There’s also lunch, bubbly, a shopping trip and 10% off everything you buy on the day. Good luck entering!
