Trends we Like – Colour “Pop”

Interior Trends we Like “pop” of colour – stay safe with grey, taupe shades but bring to life by introducing “pops” of colour in cushions, accessories, lamps and throws

May we record our total satisfaction for the services from your Company. We have been very impressed by all elements from choosing the fabric, to your extremely knowledgeable input and advice, your friendly and professional manner and of course the seven windows that you have provided curtains and blinds for look absolutely wonderful.

We have no hesitation whatsoever in returning to you for the remainder of our house and equally have no hesitation in recommending you to other customers.

You managed to put the enjoyment into what can be a stressful situation.

Thank you.

Inspired me to add Depth to My Room

Trying to achieve as much light in a room I never pulled a room together which did not look cold.  I was encouraged to add a bit of depth into my room which was balanced against my light carpet.  Wish I had taken the plunge years ago.  Not only is my room just as bright and light but it looks like a room you want to stay in.  Gilding the Lily Interiors have taught me to add tones and texture into my room and there is no going back !  PS not pushy at all !

Quirky Curtain Ideas


Echo a striking feature in your room, in this case wide block stripe in accent chairs and matching bold stripe on edge of curtain.  In this case one curtain draped to the side gives maximum light to stream into your room.  Don’t forget the pole, keep curtain neutral but add drama to the room by, in this case, spray curtain pole with red gloss to emphasise the accent colour.  Want bold but not a pattern, choose similar tones but in differing textures to add WOW factor.

No Hesitation in Recommending Gilding the Lily Interiors

I had new curtains and soft furnishings made for my lounge and bedroom by Gilding the Lily Interiors

I am delighted.

Their expertise is excellent and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
