*Lick gifted me a Colour Consultation, Decorating Kit and paint in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.
When Lick got in touch asking if I'd like to try their Video Colourist Session to help makeover a room in my home I thought it would be a fab opportunity to change up our bedroom a little.
My appointment was booked with Sam and held via WhatsApp. We had a lovely chat about interiors including my likes and dislikes, details of the space I wanted advice on (how we use it, what would be staying the same etc), my interiors style and any other requirements. It was a really relaxed chat and Sam gave me the encouragement I needed to go bold as I told her I loved the arch murals I'd been seeing on Instagram recently. After the session I was sent a bespoke mood board with details of Lick paint colours to complete the makeover.
Lick then sent me one of their super handy Decorating Kits and a tin of Yellow 01 which is a soft creamy yellow, perfect for adding a cosy pop of colour to our otherwise white bedroom. I'm just going to take a moment here to say how much I love Lick's branding - from the little messages on the packaging to the logo engraved wooden handles and gorgeous tin - there are so many little touches that make them stand out. The decorating kit I received is the single room painting kit which includes a roller and handle, 2" flat brush, metal roller tray and yellow masking tape.
We measured out the space behind the bed, taped up the straight sides and floor, then used a pencil with some string and a pin (as a compass) to draw the arch. David did the rollering while I did the arch edge - I was so surprised at how easy it was as a wee DIY project! The paint went on so nice and smooth, it only needed one coat as the wall underneath was white. It's a really thick, well pigmented paint and a little definitely goes a long way.
We finished off our mini bedroom makeover with some wee pops of yellow and other cute accessories. First, a few thrifty ones - the cushions were spare ones my Mum had sitting around, I made some pompoms to add to my fairylights (you can see how I did this using a fork here), I added a couple of yellow/gold items to my accessories box frame, and I put one of my great grandmother's vintage doilies in an embroidery hoop as a wall decoration. The beautiful wall hanging is from Letti and Low on Etsy and I found the rattan mirror on eBay. I also couldn't resist taking a pic of one of Cushy Knit's squishy blankets on the bed as it just looks so snuggly with the new colour scheme. Then, last but not least, we got a big yellow mirror ball! I absolutely love it, it's so twinkly in the sun and just makes it feel like a really cheerful space to wake up in, especially on these gloomier mornings.
If you're thinking about having a home makeover, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lick. The colourist sessions are such a great tool for helping inspire you to try something different in your home with confidence. You can find out more here and also be sure to follow Lick on Instagram as there's so many beautiful real homes featured. I keep spotting more colours I'd like to try elsewhere in the house!
