Tips for Christmas Decorating
How to keep your Christmas decorations looking fresh
Gone are the days when Christmas decorations were put up around 21st December, now people are putting them up earlier and earlier, often as early as 1st December. Traditionally, decorations are taken down on 6th January and this still seems to be the case, therefore your Christmas decorations may be up for five weeks!  
How do you ensure they still look impressive 4 weeks on, rather than looking bedraggled and rather sorry for themselves?

Interior Design Trends Autumn Winter 2011/2012
Winter is coming and as it edges closer, you will be delighted to hear that by including some elements of this year’s interior design trends in your home, you can make it even cosier and more welcoming.
We are all tired of hearing about the doom and gloom. We can’t do anything about the Greek crisis or  American debt but we can ensure that our homes are warm, inviting and convivial.  This year more than ever before, the emphasis at the interior design shows seems to be on creating a cocoon, making your home a cosy sanctuary against the elements but it is also about bringing the outside in and embracing nature as well as taking the best aspects of design from previous decades. 

Interior Design Trends Autumn Winter 2011/2012
Having visited Maison D’Objet in September, I’m delighted to bring you news of some of the latest design trends for our interiors and share with you how you can bring them into your own home décor.

Current Interior Design Trends - Spring 2010
Wondering where and how to start decorating a room or thinking of adding some finishing touches.  Our review of the latest trends from recent interior design shows in London and Paris will give you plenty of food for thought.

Creating Student Spaces
With September comes ‘back to school or college’ and for many pupils and students, that means preparation and studying for exams.  How do you create an environment in your home that is conducive to them studying without distractions and without excuses?!

Vintage and Retro Home Decor Styles
The vintage and retro look isn’t just popular within fashion, it has been making a large comeback within interiors too for some time now.  If you want to get in on the act or relive some memories, do read on …

Christmas Decorating

Why do we put up a Christmas tree with lights and decorations?

The Christmas tree as an evergreen tree is the symbol of life, when all other trees have lost their leaves and the ground is covered with frost and snow and nothing else is growing.  In the past, candles, fires and bonfires were used to light up the darkness and to symbolise how light triumphs out of the deep darkness and cold. Lights in the window were to symbolise a welcome to any travellers.


Student Living - Creating Study Spaces
Are you heading to college shortly? Wondering how you can make your student room comfortable, bright and reflect your personality rather than that of your landlord? Well, follow our tips and you won’t go wrong. 

How to get your home ready for Autumn
Evenings are drawing in and it is time to make our homes cosy for winter.  Judging by many of the new trends that I saw at the Maison Objet show in September, it is all about adding texture and warmth through your accessories this season.

Decorating Children's Bedrooms
Children’s Bedrooms are generally multi-functional - a space to sleep fundamentally but in the absence of a playroom, they will also be a space to play and to store toys. As children become older, their bedrooms become a space to relax, to read, to chat to friends and to host sleepovers. Therefore, it can be a good idea to plan them carefully when your child is young - to ensure that they are a versatile space that can be easily adapted, has good storage and space as well as having a design scheme that will not date quickly.

9 Ways to Make your Guest Bedroom so inviting
Guest bedrooms are often used for other reasons during the course of the year when you don’t have visitors staying - be it being used as a home office, a study area, storage or perhaps it is where the treadmill is kept! But if you have visitors coming for the festive period, here are some tips for ensuring your guest bedroom will make your visitors feel very special. And remember, it doesn’t have to cost a fortune or take a long time - just a few special touches will make all the difference.

Wow Your Walls with Wallpaper
Wallpaper is back with a bang, feature walls have been popular for many years and while they have lessened in popularity, they are still ‘in vogue’ partly due to some rooms being overwhelmed by wallpaper on all four walls, partly due to the cost, and partly due to people’s nervousness of decorating with wallpaper.

Cream of Irish Design
2011 is the Year of Irish Craft and it is wonderful to see so many designers and crafters receiving more press coverage and acknowlegements of their talents this year. From an national and international perspective, we all need to play a part in getting rid of the notion that Irish craft is just made up of leprachaun-type souvenirs but that the Cream of Irish Design is the culmination of what talented, creative designers can produce - beautiful one-off pieces, contemporary furniture, stylish lighting, pieces that carry a story and yet are usable within the family home.

How to get the right lighting for each room
One of the most important aspects of any design scheme involves careful consideration regarding lighting. Lighting is important not just for visibility and enabling you to see what you are doing clearly, it is also crucial for atmosphere and the amount of light a room receives, be it from natural daylight ormartificial sources, will affect the colour choices within the room. “Ambient lighting” is the name given to general background lighting and is usually provided by a central pendant which, if it is the only light source, will result in a room devoid in atmosphere.
