Why under floor heating could work for your office

When we moved into our new office, we didn’t realise how cold the building would get in winter. My guess – the high ceilings, but regardless of the cause, given my staff were wearing coats at their desks, I figured I needed a solution. There were some areas in the office we rarely used, so…

The highest quality rugs are at Hali

I work as an interior decorator, and I can safely say it’s the most fun I’ve ever had. Transforming an interior space into a work of art is something I get immense pleasure from, and there’s nothing better than a happy customer. In my time as an interior decorator, I’ve made a lot of contacts…
