    How to use wallpaper well, is a skill. Ideally, it should lift a room, add interest, colour and possibly even texture. Here, this Retro design inside the alcoves only introduces a different sense of time as well as hue, which is then repeated in a scatter cushion. It releases the room from its pastel origins, and adds an elegant, designer touch. http://bit.ly/1IM8LGP

    This pretty bedroom, with its wrought iron bed, piled high with cosy quilts and comfy cushions looks like the perfect place to enjoy a sunday morning lie in.

    The patterned feature wallpaper adds interest, while the pretty chandelier and mirrored dressing table adds a touch of glamour. The soft pink, floor length curtains complements the pale greys and completes the look.

    If you’re short of space, or don’t have a spare room to turn into a separate office, creating a desk area within a room (dining, sitting or even a kitchen if it’s big enough) could be the answer. Here, useful shelving creates a divide, delineating the two separate areas. And, because the shelves are open, it provides easy access from both sides as well as providing a more gentle feel compared to a bulky bookcase with a solid back.
