Interior design with Gwendoline Alderton- It's Curtains for Christmas! @ga_interiors

West Herts Drivetime - Tue, 27/09/2016 - 6:02pm
Today Gwendoline talked to us about prepping our interior design in time for Christmas.
For instance, if you'd like to put curtains up in time for Christmas, they usually take 4-8 weeks to make.  Therefore you should start thinking about ordering any new curtains now. Also, you should think about whether you want blackout curtains, or other sorts of curtains, such as voile or net curtains.  You choice will depend on what sort of room you are looking to modernise.

If you'd like to order a sofa in time for Christmas, it is worth remembering that it takes 6-8 weeks for sofas to be handmade, and 4-6 weeks for sofas to be delivered, if you're hoping to get it from abroad.  Be aware of the space you need to fill, and the  style you want when considering new furniture.  Make sure you have fabric samples because the lighting in the showrooms are very different from lighting in your home.

If you're thinking about redecorating the walls, think about whether you need anything reflective on the walls. You might want to think about having reflective items if you're decorating a dark room.  There are many reflective paints on the market at the moment.
