They say that being familiar with history is important because it can help people from preventing the mistakes of the past. The New Zealand Herald reports that, when it comes to interior design, being aware of the different historical elements in a room or piece of furniture can help add an elegant atmosphere to any abode.

According to the news source, one of the fiercest advocates of this well-rounded approach to interior design is expert Stephen Taylor. He uses his rich background in areas ranging from philosophy to 19th century art to inspire creative layouts.

"Knowing the historical 'family' that a piece of furniture or architecture belongs to gives you more choices and more confidence to make good choices," he told the news outlet.

Taylor also suggests that displaying art or books can give a room a rich, austere ambiance. While artwork and literature can certainly add a refined feeling to a living space, if they are overexposed to bright sunlight, they may lose their luster over time.

Homeowners who have incorporated books or art into their house may want to consider hanging woven wood shades to protect their accessories from sun damage. Along with adding a beautiful aesthetic, woven wood shades can effectively block sunlight, and can easily be raised if one so chooses.
