The History and Evolution of Interior Decoration from 1850 to today
By Gerald WATELET, stylist, TV presenter, chef, and… interior designer
Creativity has been a human characteristic since the beginning of time, and consciously or unconsciously, people have always embellished their surroundings, aiming to make their personal space welcoming, safe and full of energy for themselves and all those they invite inside.
Culture, means and taste – whether good or bad – are irrelevant here, for each one of us strives to create a ‘stage’ of sorts for our lives. It is this scene-setting we are concerned with; how it occurs and how it evolves; what sort of ‘coming together’ is involved in the trade of the ‘ensemblier’ or interior designer.
