Just finished an article on Japanese design for our Styles and Periods website. Take a look, it gives you some ideas on how to decorate using a Japanese Theme.
Some tips on Japanese Design – keep the space light and airy, clutter free. Simple timber furniture. A single focal point.
For more please visit the article and there are plenty of other styles to look at while you are there and I will be adding more over the next few weeks.
Is Wallpaper “in” or Outdated?
Question:Is wallpaper “in” these days? I’m afraid it may be dated, is that true?
Answer:I don’t believe that wallpaper ever dates. It depends entirely on the pattern and situation. Wallpapers can be traditional modern or neutral. In fact there are some that were developed to look like paint but had a very uniform finish. Check out your decorating stores and have a look at what’s available, I’m sure that you will be very surprised. Incidentally we still specify wallpapers and vinyl wall coverings very regularly. Other options are to just paint the wall but use a paper frieze or dado to add the detail to the room. Read this article on using wallpaper for feature walls. Hope this helps.
