Inspirational Lounges for Autumn Winter 2018

After a long hot Summer, Autumn is starting to have that chill nip to the air.  Putting the heating on can still leave over neutralised looking homes feeling cool and chilly. Why not warm them up with a splash of spicy colour with richly coloured made to measure curtains, or an accent chair or new sofa?

Nature As Inspiration For A Tranquil Interior

Nature as inspiration for interior Staffordshire Interior Design www.funkywunkydoodahs.co.uk

Whilst looking skywards from my sun lounger in France this week I was struck by how amazingly blue the sky was & how the light bounced off the wonderfully green leaves on the trees. “If only the sky could be like this all of the time how marvellous I would feel” was one of my passing thoughts.

Then it struck me as to how nature had inspired Tricia Guild to create the Giardino Segreto fabric & wallpaper range.Nature Inspired Interior FunkyWunkyDooDahs Ltd Staffordshire

So I’m in luck – fabulous fabrics & wallpapers to remind me of the wonderful Spring & Summer skies & foliage even in the depths of Winter.

Why not pop in and see this fabulous range for yourself & let us create your nature inspired designed interior – whether it’s a pair of curtains for your garden room or lounge or a whole redesign?
