Adrian’s Horror Story

Extra Extra Read All About It

Adrian’s horror story has been published in the ICI Dulux Trade’s newsletter (issue 10 Winter 2010), TradeXpress.

TradeXpress is the trade newsletter for professional decorators with the latest news from the trade, reviews of latest products and a round up of what is going on within the trade, as well as features and stories from decorators.

I received the TradeXpress newsletter and read it with interest, I twitter as @propertydecor and follow @DuluxTrade which is how this came about, @DuluxTrade asked if I had any horror stories I could submit. I submitted my horror story about a job I did some years ago now, I hadn’t come across it before and haven’t seen anything like it since……..

To find out what I’m on about you can see my story on the TradeXpress website.

Swatch 10GG51/125 (Cool Jade)

Colour trends for 2009

Reading the Dulux Trade ‘Trade Xpress’ newsletter this week their is an interesting article about the paint colour trends for 2009. The trends are soft and subtle.

Trade Xpress said:

For 2009, the team has predicted a move towards colours that are soft and subtle, but which still have very strong links to the built environment, our natural landscape and natural craft materials. The influence of green can clearly be seen, and as colour of the year 2009 right quote the consultants have selected a shade of cool jade: 10GG51/125.
