February 2014 meeting: improving not moving

February saw our first proper meeting of the year with a fantastic attendance from members and lots of new faces!

Local interior designer extraordinaire, Debbie Neal, took us through the world of interior design and how we can maximise the space we have rather than moving. We learnt some of the science behind the use of colour and the golden rule of 3: never have more than 3 colours or materials in any one room.

We were then set the challenge of designing our own room to a client’s contemporary brief and picking out everything from the paint and fabrics to the furniture, flooring, lighting and window dressings. We ended up with an interesting array of results before Debbie revealed the final design that the client had agreed! An inspiring start to the new year for the Alexandra WI.
