Top Interior Design Tips for Creating Spaces that are Both Stylish and Practical

Interior design plays a crucial role in making a house feel like a home. Not only do you want to design a space that is inviting, welcoming and in keeping with your personal style, it is important to ensure that the interior of your home is practical, useable and has longevity.

We were delighted to meet with Alexander James Interiors recently, who are one of the UK’s, and the world’s, leading Interior Design houses. We spoke to the lovely Julie Clifford, Head of Brand Partnership, and Beatrice Knight, Head of Marketing and Client Services, to chat all things interior design.

Not only did we discuss the amazing bespoke service they offer their clients, they also shared with us some great tips and advice. We discussed current interior design trends, as well as how the covid pandemic has affected these trends, and their top tips for clients when designing the interior space of their home.

Some of our favourite tips they shared with us were…

  • As well as considering the look and feel of space, remember to consider the practicality of it – does it have longevity, will the design and space still be practical for your growing family overtime, does it give you all the functionality you desire it to.
  • When choosing a colour palette for your space, make sure it is something you absolutely love but can also see yourself enjoying in years to come – you could consider going for a neutral palette and changing up the colour of accessories.
  • Comfort is key! Having a beautiful home that you love is of course very important, but equally so is the comfort of your home. Sofas, beds, office chairs, desks and kitchen island stools are just some of the crucial aspects of your design where comfort should be a top priority.
