Decorating for Christmas

COLOUR is one of the main components of interior design, and the same could be said about decorating your house for Christmas. The colours traditionally associated with this time of year are vibrant reds and greens, and golds and bronzes, to create a warm and homely effect. Colours have a subliminal effect on us, with […]

Getting ready for Christmas

GETTING ready for Christmas…just writing it gets me excited! I mean, who doesn’t love the festive season, right? Of course, it doesn’t come without a little dose of stress and panic. Like many of us, I have the family over. You would think I had the royal family coming, with the amount of cleaning and […]

Voiles are back in fashion!

WINDOW dressing is a vital part of any interior-decoration scheme.  Curtains clearly have a practical use:to control the entry of light and heat, to give privacy and to create an intimate environment.

THE main reason a home can look untidy mostly boils down to not having the right storage! We all have “stuff”, and there is no getting away from it. The fact is, it’s impossible, so we have to learn to live with it. Take, for instance, the office area. We all have mountains of paperwork, […]

Private rental property

IF you rent out your property, you sometimes need to take a critical look at it, in case it’s necessary to make any changes for the months ahead. Don’t lose sight of who is going to use the property. For example, if you are aiming for high-end rentals, you will need to supply good-quality furniture […]

Holiday time for everybody

IT’S hot! Everybody is on holiday! Salads and cool drinks are the order of the day. Shade and sea is all they need.
