One of the biggest challenges of painting a house can be picking what colour to use. Resene's Sarah Gregory knows how to put together a colour scheme. She recommends when testing colours in your house, rather than painting a swatch on the wall, get some card and paint that. This way you can move it around your house and see how it looks in all of the rooms.

Champagne is the perfect drink for any celebration, and Yvonne Lorkin from Wine Friend has a few recommendations for which ones you should be drinking.

Her trick for how to make sure you have just the right amount of bubbles for your event is to count how many guests you have, divide that by four, then you’ll have the number of bottles that you should buy. Easy!
