Mary Namukose an interior designer argues that you can live in a room of your dreams regardless of where you are. Here are a few tips on how to give your house a glamorous look.

“Different colours mean send a different messages, so what you incorporate in your room send a picture to people who visit. For example blue represents love and calmness and it could be good for a room. White is a universal colour that shows purity, you can have it solo or blend it with another colour preferable blue, purple, pink depending on what you prefer,” she says.
