Alpine lodge, après-ski anyone? Well, who wouldn’t if you had a place like this to come back to after a day on the slopes. Materials matter most here, with reclaimed wood, a concrete console and that fab faux-fur throw. When it gets too hot, just slide open those doors and chill. Princess in the tower, remodelling a loft space is commonplace, but this attic conversion takes the design to new heights. No plaster ceiling boards here – the living space stretches up to the eaves. And, to add an offbeat element to the contemporary interior, the Gothic-style screen is perfect for hiding behind before your prince turns up for his kiss. Mwahh!
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 this case an elegant chandelier anchors the space while a Venetian-style mirror adds a note of glamour. 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.
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. Choose hard-working furniture such as ottomans and chests of drawers, and don’t neglect forgotten areas such as those above a door, where built-in shelving can look effective.
