  • We head to the Ideal Home Show 2016 to speak to George Clarke about the best decorating advice he’s ever been given and ask him for a few top tips for home improvement.

    “The best decorating advice I’ve ever been given is ‘it’s all about the preparation’. I’ve got no patience, I want everything done really quickly, but for decorating that’s not good. It’s all about the prep, preparing the walls before you put on paint or wallpaper.”

    “My biggest indulgence are my kids – I spoil them rotten, I love spending time with them. I have been lucky enough to recently buy a home in the sun. So next week I’m doing my first trip there, the builders have been in, doing lots of work for the last 5 or 6 months. For the Easter weekend I am going out there with my kids which will be great.”
