Interior Design Comes Full Circle Postcat2 15.04.2016 Trends, fashions, and design always tend to go full circle, in all manner of products. Clothing is the obvious example, with fashions repeating themselves over the years. Food is another favourite, as we see many trendy gastro pubs having famous old Lancashire dishes at the top of the specials board. Interior design takes the same pattern, with designers of today taking inspiration from the styles of yesteryear. You only have to walk down the aisles of your local DIY store to see roll after roll of bold floral design wall paper, as if from the 60s and vivid stripes, drawn from the 80s. Transforming your home does not have to cost the earth. New ideas in accessories, such as cushions, throws and blinds can make all the difference to a tired room, giving your home that on trend look, to keep up with shifts in style. Window dressings can take this to another level, not only do they style and add colour to your windows and doors, they also have a dramatic effect on the way light enters a room, changing and even enhancing the atmosphere within it. Wooden plantation shutters are currently one of the biggest sort after products in the blind industry, based on the shutters used back in the 18th century, but with modern styling, they add ample character to any room. So next time you are thinking of giving your room a new lease of life, its worth considering an alternative window dressing , which can provide a dramatic transformation.
