After years of minimalism, a new generation of designers is restoring spirit and vitality to the contemporary interior using vivid colour, bold pattern, and more than a touch of exuberance. As we pass the mid-point of the Noughties, Liz Wilhide takes a look at the new ideas and themes that are directing current interiors' trends, and discovers the new decor is about exciting twists on traditional forms using up-to-date imagery and cutting edge materials and techniques - a baroque chair made in Perspex, a chandelier twinkling with LEDs, a Toile de Jouy wallpaper featuring gritty urban scenes. On the flipside, there is also a contemporary chair upholstered in a traditional print, and a bold modern light fitting in room, decorated with a retro-print wallpaper. "New Decor" provides a wealth of inspiration to enable you to reintroduce exciting elements of colour and pattern to your home. Stunning examples of contemporary homes are showcased demonstrating how the look comes together to create vibrant and original interiors. Alongside these examples, tips and ideas boxes give sound practical advice - everything from how to use strong colour, to which rug to choose. A comprehensive suppliers' directory cuts out the legwork.
