Decorating With Mirrors

Posted on 30 Nov, 2020

Mirrors show reflections of anything placed in front of them. It is how we can see ourselves when we look in the mirror every morning. But this is not all mirrors can do. They have been used by interior designers for years to create various effects in homes and commercial spaces. Here are some mirror decorating ideas we have found that you can easily use.

More Light

If a room does not have enough natural light, a mirror is the only solution needed. Find a large mirror and place it opposite a window. It will reflect all the light from the window back into the room, making it brighter.

A mirror placed next to a light source will increase the intensity of the light shone in the room.

A Mirror as a Piece of Art Continue reading >

Using White for Interior Design

Posted on 11 Nov, 2020

Whilst most people may think of white as a blank canvas, those familiar with interior design know it is a fantastic tool to bring out the best of any room. Here in the office we had mixed feelings about how much to use so after carrying out some research and asking around we came up with a few tips on how to get the most out of your whites. What white is right for you?  People often think of white as a simple choice, but with the vast array of whites to choose from, it is anything but. The first key decision is choosing the correct white for the space. Do you want a warmer, or cooler tone to the room? What type of lighting does the room have? Artificial light can make a room appear cooler, whilst natural light makes a room appear warmer.  Cho... Continue reading >

How Interior Design is Changing

Posted on 29 Sep, 2020

Like any art form, interior design is in a constant state of flux. Practices that were commonplace a few years ago can already appear out-dated. As time moves on, the way we design today will doubtless seem just as old-hat.

A Day in the Life of a Recruiter

Posted on 14 Sep, 2020

As a recruiter, it’s important to start the day the right way and, for me, that means making a cuppa before I scan through my morning emails for anything I need to action straight away. Next, I check our social media accounts for any comments or messages that need a reply. While doing this, I also try to come up with some topics that will make for interesting new posts. This is an ongoing process – normally I try to retweet posts and add new content at least 4 or 5 times a day.

It’s about this time that the phone starts ringing – usually one of our employer clients, looking to discuss some of the CVs we’ve sent across. We chat for a while about each applicant, with my goal being to secure an interview for t... Continue reading >
