It occurred to me recently when I went to a clients home to discuss some new ideas for layout and style that furniture placement does not come naturally to most people and simply re-arranging your furniture can make a massive difference to the feel of your space.
Recently there was a curb side collection around New Farm where my office is. It's funny how Australians love to collect other peoples furniture that they don't want anymore.
I remember a time when everyone just followed the same interior design trend and the decades were distinguishable by their homes and fashion. I think those days are gone. There will always be a defining trend for each decade and I think patterned ceramic tiles might end up being ours but trends just change so quickly now that the world has become so much smaller.
