In the Eighties, Paul Young had a hit with the song ‘Wherever I lay my hat (that’s my home)’.
It’s a great song but it doesn’t say much for his interior design ambitions.
The trouble was that Mr Young was the type of boy who was always on the roam. As a result, he never quite got the hang of scatter cushions or herbaceous borders and his grasp of colour coordination was quite beyond the pale.
Avoid Eighties pop star interior design disasters with today’s Big Deal for the relaunched Ideal Home Show Scotland.
With a new team and format, the Ideal Home Show will be painting the SECC red From Friday 27 May to Monday 30th.
Over 400 exhibitors and a whole crew of creative celebrities will be fizzing with inspirational ideas over eight dedicated sections.
Split into Ideal Interiors, Ideal Home Improvements, Ideal Gardens, Ideal Shopping, Ideal Woman, Ideal Food, Ideal Housewares and the Ideal Village, there is something for everyone at the Ideal Homes Show Scotland.
From Linda Barker’s interior design ideas via the green-fingered tips of garden guru Diarmuid Gavin to the cheery grin of pudding expert Greg Wallace in the Celebrity Chef Theatre, the show is packed with TV stars.
Add in the iconic show houses plus plenty of shopping opportunities with desirable brand names and The Ideal Home Show Scotland will help you turn your pad into a palace.
Whether you want to install a spa bath, watch Jean-Christophe Novelli cook up a culinary storm or check the latest designer fashions on the catwalk, the Ideal Home Show Scotland will be the lifestyle event of the year.
According to the song, Paul Young could tell by the look in his girl’s eye that she was going to cry. She’d probably seen his bathroom’s colour scheme.
