Averyl Dufour Bedroom, October 12th , 2017. Easy living, if space allows, introduce a living room feel into your bedroom for the ultimate in hotel boudoir chic. Chairs, upholstered ottomans, artwork, books and treasured collections in a zoned area will create a mini sitting area and add a touch of cosiness. In this scheme an antique dresser painted in a dramatic black provides a natural focus. ‘No matter how small your bedroom is, a chair is always practical,’ says Nicola Holden of Nicola Holden Designs. ‘If it causes too much clutter, consider plumping for something like the unobtrusive Ghost chair by Philippe Starck.

Don’t worry about trying to fit a bath – go for a luxurious glass shower enclosure instead. It’s common with loft conversions and attics to box in parts of the room that have a reduced ceiling height for storage. But instead, why not look at ways to work around the reduced heights? A toilet or basin is a smart idea.
Averyl Dufour Bedroom, October 12th , 2017. Hot zone, got a novel to finish? Somehow, we think you won’t complete your tome here. Not with that view to enjoy each day, plus those large, embracing armchairs on the terrace look far too tempting. Still, we might stretch ourselves to send a few postcards home. Perhaps in a day or two. Screen goddess, while the kids hog the telly downstairs with their games console, we think you should move on up… Yup – a TV is cleverly hidden in the housing at the foot of the bed.

Averyl Dufour Bedroom, October 12th , 2017. Add opulence, play up your bedroom’s assets, whether it’s a beautiful period mantlepiece or wide windows, and emphasise a room’s proportions with a few striking pieces.

In a compact space, don’t be afraid to opt for fewer, larger pieces of furniture which will make a greater impact than smaller pieces. Provide one or two key focal points to draw the eye to the outer spaces of the room, whether a striking piece of artwork, or headboard covered in luxe fabric.
