I have just come back from working with an interior decorator on a really fun job in an office fit out in the CBD, Melbourne. Quality Interior decorators have a wealth of knowledge and oftne end up saving you money and certianly time. We at Pegasus Antiques have some great working relaitnships with decorators, and are happy to accomodate thier needs (whihc are sometimes crazy!) and love to see the end results upon delivery.
The use of textures, combining classic with modern furniture and fabrics can give you house a lift that it needs. I have enjoyed working with interior designers who use the ethos classic and quality create a timeless space.
