“Design is about making people happy, either functionally, emotionally or aesthetically” [Robin Siegerman] We don’t know what it is about spring but it really does inspire the seasonal cliché of change and all things new.

The effective use of our interior spaces can have a positive impact on our health, productivity, happiness, and general well-being. Understanding your personal taste in style is an integral part of achieving the ultimate goal of interior design: to reflect personality while creating a welcoming and functional environment.
Choosing the right décor isn’t just about picking your favourite colours and making sure your room is arranged well. Modern colour psychology is a great place to start when digging deeper into how a room can affect your subconscious mind.

You may be thinking about a freshening up or a complete overhaul of the premises. Here we provide you with some options on what looks good. Bear in mind that when we think of a pub, we tend to get an image of the Rovers Return like in Coronation Street. All pubs (and arguably a lot) are not like this and it is important to be aware of that, since this feeds into people’s perceptions and ideas about style and interior design ideas.
