Question by sten213: Help with interior project, england interiors, anyone who lives there?
I’m doing a project for a summer interior design class, using decor from other countries and using different styles. What do interiors of regular living rooms and bedrooms look like in england? Basically, how do you all decorate and what’s typically found in your bedrooms and living spaces? I know all the regular things, that might have been a silly question… But what would you call the style and colors?
Thanks so much for any help.

personally I like the Scandinavian style … I’ve got wood laminate floor in maple (a pale wood colour), reasonably minimal furniture mostly in birch (another pale wood colour) … I don’t like dark wood colours because it feels too heavy and makes the rooms feel smaller … where I differ from Scandinavian style is that I don’t like their strong colours and fabric designs … I go for wood rather than black or white or anything … on the walls I’ve gone for pastel colours, pale pink, dusty pink, light green, pale lilac, but they’re all colours rather than what I call non-colours of beige, grey, etc … for pictures I’ve framed some of my own photos, plus my (very artistic) daughter’s work … have a look through the IKEA catalogue and you’ll get an idea of what I mean http://ikeaeu.ecweb.is/09/mgb/
