We only have to look at the fashion pages and on-line fashion sites to see how styles come full circle again, and the clothes that some of us wore in the 80’s and 90’s, have again become key fashion statements of today.
The same is true of interior design. Some of us may remember the TV campaign from a certain Swedish company a few years ago that prompted us all to ‘chuck out the chintz’. The return of colour and pattern back on the interiors ‘cat-walk’ (namely the interiors media), is clear to see in recent years. The interiors writers are now saying that natural textures and patterns in textiles and homeware are the next big thing. Maybe not a return of chintz perhaps, but a more sophisticated way to bring floral and other images of nature back into the home.
