There is evidence that Interior Design has been part of civilisation from the very earliest times when men decorated their caves with drawings of animals, humans and plants. Interior design became more sophisticated as the Greeks and Romans used elaborate mosaics and decorated vases to beautify their surroundings. Styles like Gothic, Byzantine, Renaissance and Baroque developed over the centuries demonstrating a host of different looks, usually reflecting the beliefs and trends of society at those the times. The industrial revolution opened up the world of interior design to the general population and style magazines emerged with fashionable design ideas. At the beginning of the 20th century, interior design established itself as a career choice, a leading figurehead in this being Elsie De Wolfe who inspired others to replace sombre Victorian décor with light, soft colours and French elegance. In later years, increased travel and globalisation meant the sharing of ideas with other cultures and in more recent times, TV makeover shows became exceptionally popular and boosted the recognition of interior design.
Although home décor is now accessible to everybody, it is not any less daunting a prospect, when faced with so much choice in designs, colours and materials. The knowledge that your decision will probably affect the mood and living experience of you and your family for some time to come, can be a little disconcerting.
One of the nicest feelings is to enter a beautiful, freshly decorated room, especially if it reflects aspects of your personality. While it is perhaps enjoyable to think about what style you want for your décor, and to have a good, or vague, idea of your perfect outcome, there are many factors which only an experienced interior designer can help with. An interior designer can provide a professional angle, and will be aware of labour and money saving ways to get amazing results. They can ensure that you get the results you desire without playing safe, appearing dull, or making expensive design mistakes.
