Pauline and Matt Colgan built their home and moved in 5 years ago. They decorated their house as young professionals but they now have a toddler that they need to accommodate as part of their family. They have a passion for beige and bling, but are growing tired of it and need help. Pauline and Matt say that they enjoyed doing up their home in the past but only have confidence to copy images from magazines or showrooms and want to be taught how to loosen up, go out of their comfort zone and learn to embrace colour.

They need the Design Doctors help to find a solution to their empty patio space so that they finally make use of it. And with Ben turning three soon, they are desperate to design a new creative bedroom full of colour, but don’t know where to start.
