Episode 1: First stop, Tunbridge Wells

In the series opener, it was newcomer Whinnie William who had the challenge of taking on Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

Whinnie was tasked with transforming Lotta and Eddy’s tired-looking living room into ‘Doll House Chic’. She wanted to create a contemporary retro look, so turned to the Dulux Heritage range.

Dulux Heritage Potters Pink and Butter Cup were used on the walls, while DH Grass Green was used on the woodwork. Read more about Dulux Heritage’s role in the episode, here.

Whinnie also applied some great painting techniques, including tongue-and-groove panels, which she painted in contrasting Dulux Heritage shades. 

Patterned wallpaper played an important role in the transformation too. You can find similar designs in our extensive wallpaper range.

Whinnie's before and after...

Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen put his design skills to the test in Charlotte and Stuart’s living room. His goal was a Suburban Jungle theme, so chose statement shades and bold wallpaper patterns – in pure LLB style.

He used a wild mix of Dulux colours, which included Cobalt Embrace on the woodwork to enhance the room’s key features.

Glacial Spring, Village Maze, Moroccan Flame and White Cotton were used on the remaining walls.

Like Whinne’s makeover, patterned wallpaper was at the heart of Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen's design – which you’ll find reams of inspiration of in the Dulux Decorator Centre Wallpaper Hub.
