Hi, my name is Bettina and I have written a DIY guide for homeowners to avoid waisting time and money when not having a strategic plan for your renovation. What my ebook does is very quickly develop a plan for you through a range of printout worksheets, checklists and practical tips so that you are very clear what you have spent, what to buy and when to buy it whilst renovating.

How Should I Budget for the Unexpected in my Kitchen Renovation? Wilsonart Wednesday

We had our whole house (in Sydney) painted in Antique White because our painter suggested it as one of the favourite whites from Dulux. This was five years ago and I had not studied colour design at that time and we had to renovate in four months because we needed to move in the house. Now five years later - after graduating from design school with a colour design diploma - I hate my antique white walls. This colour only looks good in rooms with lots of sunlight or warm artificial light when it creates a warm atmosphere. As soon as you apply it to southern facing rooms (no sunlight in the southern hemisphere), antique white looks dirty and grey. Grrrrh! Well, I guess this was a learning curve and I know better now. So, I can very much relate to your personal crusade against antique white.

I bought a timber mantel at an auction house a few weeks ago. Repaired it , painted it white and will use it as prop for my site at a home show in Sydney end of May. Looks great!

Love grey as it is such a versatile colour. I would like to share a blog post I have written a while ago: http://www.bdcolourdesign.net.au/the-colour-grey-depressing-or-versatile/
