Spotlight on Household Designer Names

Posted on 03 Apr, 2019

The design world exists and impacts on so many aspects of our lives, from the mobile phones we use to the clothes we wear. Most of the time this is done so unobtrusively that we are not aware of the amount of thought, effort and skill that has gone into it.

An example is when visiting a hotel lobby, a guest may be impressed by the opulence, but we might not consider how this has been achieved. The mixture of textures, use of colour and carefully structured layout may well go over their head, but the experience that the designer wishes to create is conveyed all the same. In this way, designers are not often known outside the industry, though they may be very successful.

At Careers in Design, we love matching up clients and candidates to form long-... Continue reading >

The Secret to Modern Country Style Interiors

Posted on 04 Mar, 2019

The country home has always had a special charm for interior designers. Mixing character and cosiness with a quintessentially British aspect, it has been a real stalwart for designing traditional hotel spaces, period properties, barn conversions and more. The drawback with the traditional country look is expense and practicality. With more and more people drawn into cities, living spaces are becoming smaller and the country home look has become less popular in favour of more minimalistic styles. Luckily there is a way to get the best of both worlds, adapting the country home to fit modern living and tastes, in a modern country interior.

Interior Design Fabrics to Celebrate Spring

Posted on 20 Feb, 2019

Fabrics are so important to interior design but often they are the unsung hero that fall into the background. The way that an interior designer uses fabric in a project is a real balancing act of many different factors. Too many bold designs can make the space seem stuffy or crowded, while too many intricate patterns can be visually confusing. On the other side of the scale, plain options can lead to a space seeming washed out and cold.

With Spring just around the corner (well nearly!). we look at some of the best ways that fabric can be used in interior design.

In spaces that see a lot of traffic like show homes, hotels and restaurants, designers often seek to offset the busyness of the area by adopting a simple, modern style, but that can miss the opportunity to introd... Continue reading >

Wallpaper Designs to Suit Every Space

Posted on 11 Jan, 2019

Using statement wallpaper is one way to change the look of a space, be it in your home, a coffee shop or a hotel, and there are plenty of amazing designs to choose from. Whether you want something simple and muted, bold and bright or classy and elegant, there's something for everyone.

The first recorded use of wallpaper was in China in 200 B.C. when the Chinese first glued rice paper to walls. When the craze moved to Europe only the wealthy could afford to commission artisans to create their designs via hand painting or the use of stencils. Luckily with the advent of the printing press they became more widely available and now modern printing technology allows us a huge array of choices in pattern, texture and ... Continue reading >
