If you spent your childhood wishing you could – for just two seconds – have a go on the giant piano which lined the floor of a toy store in Big, then it’s time to re-live your youth.
Kicking off a series of seven outdoor movies which will be screened around the country throughout the summer, the Law Society in Dublin’s Blackhall Place will be showing everybody’s favourite coming of age movie at 8pm tonight, and we are PUMPED.
Not only giving the good people of Dublin the chance to kick back in the great outdoors and get their nostalgia on with pals, 7UP Free and Happenings will also be providing thirsty movie-goers with 7UP Mojito Free on arrival.
Oh, and just in case you think the giant piano will be confined to the screen, think again – Oh yes ladies, they’ve thought of everything.
So after tiring yourself out tickling the ivories, bail on to a billow bag and watch Tom Hanks get big while the sun sets over Dublin city.
If you want to be in with a chance to win a pair of tickets for tonight’s screening, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
They say the best things come in small packages, and this is true even for rooms. They’re cosy, aren’t they? However, if you want to make it LOOK as if the package isn’t quite so small (even if it IS great) then here are some tips on how to make a small room look bigger:
Get curtains that are the same colour as the wall – it creates the illusion of there being more wall space. And who doesn’t want more wall space?
Sofas and armchairs
Go for sofas and armchairs that are raised on legs to create the illusion of space and light.
Go for light and neutral colours. Dark colours will make the room seem more closed in.
Don’t fill up every nook and cranny
Stuffing every shelf with loads of stuff because your down and in a strange space, will make your room look like it’s too small to hold everything. The solution? De-clutter, de-clutter, de-clutter.
Furniture that bends and folds
Go for a table that can be made bigger and smaller, or furniture that can be folded up and rolled away. This way when you don’t need it, it won’t be taking up space.
From the ceiling to the floor
If you can, install a bookshelf that goes from the ceiling to the floor is good for making your room look as if it has a really high ceiling.
The magic trick to making any space look bigger.
