Interior Design Feature with Gwendoline Alderton


Gwendoline chose the themes of 'top interior design tips of this year' and also 'design tips for christmas' for this months feature.

Colour was a theme Gwendoline talked about earlier this year, especially 'warm' colours and 'cold' colours. Recommended colours for christmas are a white tree with red decorations, or a more traditional green tree can work well with plum colours. And a splash of black can also work well with plum.

Flexible fiurniture was also discussed. Furniture that is multi-purpose can have many uses over many years, particluary as children are growing up.

Next, Gwendoline reminded us of the advantages of de-cluttering. Start small, perhaps with a few drawers, and see how much you can clear out! It's considered to be refreshing, therapeutic and creates lots of extra space (which can of course taken up with all those christmas presents you're hoping to get!).

Lighting was also mentioned as an important consideration to your home. Mentioned in an earlier feature this year, Gwendoline reminded us that a balance between different kinds of lighting can create great atmospheres in different spaces in the home. Various lighting effects can be created for practical, atmospheric and safety uses.
