H. Brook DIY is an independent wallpaper stockist based in Keighley. They are a proud stockist of our famous brands – Crown, Coloroll & Vymura, and have been dealing with us for over 50 years. The questionnaire below has been kindly completed by Michelle Simpson on behalf of H. Brook DIY.
1. What’s the story behind H. Brook DIY? When did you get started?
The business was started over 50 years ago by Howard Brook selling paint on a market stall. He bought premises and gradually expanded the shop as neighbouring properties became available to buy. H. Brook D.I.Y is still a family run business and sell a host of D.I.Y products ranging from wallpaper and paint to wood and curtain tracks.
2. What do you love about the wallpaper industry?
Fashion led, trendy, constantly changing, colour and patterns are very important and fun (especially all the new quirky papers). It appeals to my creative side. Every customer has a different view of what they are trying to achieve.
3. What’s your favourite Crown, Coloroll or Vymura wallpaper?
Personally, within the current range my favourite is the black Zebra print but from a sales point of view it would be Synergy as it sells and sells.
4. Do you have any predictions for 2017 wallpaper trends and colours?
Moroccan tiles and Jacquard in rich colours like dark blue, orange and dark purple.
Following on from the stones, trees and wood designs I think there will be more natural colours like soft greens, pale blues, chunky knit, herringbone and possibly tartan.
I also expect small geometric patterns to continue.
Ombre is currently coming through in the fashion world so that might make it to a wallpaper design.
5. What is your top interior design tip?
Always use a mix of textures.
If you are designing for yourself there is no right or wrong result if you like it. A perfectly designed room should make you smile!
