Introducing The Colour Consultants
It’s that time of year where the spring colours have sprung and suddenly our showroom is surrounded in Lilac, Teals and Blush Pink! But, that’s not what we are here to chat about. We want to introduce ourselves , tell you a bit more about Dekors and our future plans! This is our first ever blog and we’re a tad excited.
The faces behind Dekors and the creators of our unique space in Irvine. We boast creative ideas and an eye for showcasing the wide collection of wallpapers, fabrics, paints and accessories that Dekors has to offer. Continuing to inspire and work hard to provide a professional shop experience when you visit us – Julie, Shirley, Avril, Gillian and Wendy are always on hand to help you transform your home with paint and wallpaper. Whether you’re embarking on a large renovation project or redecorating the family home or simply looking for a pot of paint. Don’t worry if you are a little daunted by choice, short on time or simply hoping for the confidence to try something bolder. Our team will be able to advise you whatever the style of your space.
You may not know that Dekors is a family run business with over 25 years’ experience in the trade. Brian and Lynda McCandlish evolved their paint contracting business into a Wallpaper, Paint & Fabric store in the late 1980’s. The business continued to grow following the addition of their daughter, Julie, to the team in 2002 and now the shop has developed into the store they have today with mother and daughter at the helm.
Which takes us to what we have been up to lately…
The past few months has been a bit of a learning curve. Learning the business more, getting to know our customers and finding out what YOU want when it comes to interiors (if you filled in our survey, you’ll know what we’re talking about). We’ve also been working hard and after seeking some expert advice, we couldn’t be more excited to implement some of the ideas we’ve all come up with, including you! Here is what you can look forward to in the upcoming year!
New Look Website
Our website is a working progress, new tabs, rotating galleries and more visual content. We’ll not bore you with the technical stuff, but basically what we’re saying is – not being able to make it into the store won’t be such a bad thing anymore! The new site will be much easier to use and fully integrated with our social media platforms and inspo galore. Also, ALL STOCK WALLPAPERS that we carry in the store are now available for purchase online.
Dekors on Instagram
Speaking of social media platforms, we are now on Instagram! We realised it was time to jump on the bandwagon as Instagram has been proven to be a powerful marketing tool for businesses looking to expand their presence and the visibility of their products. One of the points most of you highlighted to us in our survey. Well, after you’ve finished reading this we’d appreciate if you checked out our grid and let us know what you think so far? As you may know, we already have existing accounts on Facebook and Twitter, so if you don’t already follow us, check us out there too!
We’ll be keeping in touch with you via our monthly blogs, so if there is anything you would like us to share with you, then please feel free to get in touch. From colours to fabrics to wallpapers, we can tell you what’s in and what’s out!
