Interior design feature with Gwendoline Alderton @ga_interiors

West Herts Drivetime - Tue, 22/11/2016 - 6:00pm
Today we talked to Gwendoline Alderton, our interior design correspondent, about Christmas and what that means for interior design.  She talked about colours associated with Christmas, such as red and green.  However this year white has become more popular, with white Christmas trees being sold. However you can use white in many different ways, including white upholstery or white light fittings.  You could also try off-white or cream colours.
In order to add interest to any white things you might use, you could add pastel colours such as blue or pink.  You could also add darker and lighter colours to accent the pastel colours.

Usually there's an animal that is especially popular on the high street around Christmas time- and this year owls are on trend.  You can find owls in many places- including on woolly hats!  Within the world of interior design, however, you can find them on baubles and other tree decorations.

Christmas decorations are usually about attention to detail- you want something which will add a bit of glamour or sparkle.  Add glass or crystal are very quick ways to adding glamour to your home, and you can do this through getting crystal baubles or perhaps through drinking glasses.  Feathers, fur and wool are also really good textures for adding detail.
