Averyl Dufour Bedroom, 2017-10-13 19:39:53. Take in elements of nature, the combination of skylights – on both sides of a pitched ceiling – and floor-to-ceiling wood panelled cupboards gives this attic bedroom the feel of a grown-up treehouse! Failing that, the open space with its glass stair panels and natural materials (chunky wool as well as the bleached wood) has a really tranquil Scandi finish. A place to daydream up in the clouds.

Choose a modern design unusual enough to take pride of place in a minimal bedroom. Because you’re only covering a headboard, the outlay for fabric shouldn’t be big. Paint walls white to let the fabric print stand out and lift the look with a touch of lime using two citrus cushions and curtains. Dress the bed with plain linen to continue the white scheme.

Take a decorative roller with a raised leaf or floral pattern, roll in a contrasting paint shade and apply the pattern up and down the wall. Don’t worry about being exact – any imperfections will add to the hand-rolled charm. Fit long-lasting tongue-and-groove for a practical shelf that oozes country style.

If you have an awkwardly shaped ceiling – like this loft bathroom – turn it into a decorative feature. Paint the ceiling white to contrast with the statement wallpaper behind. It’s a great way to add character in a confined space.

Averyl Dufour Bathroom, 2017-09-21 20:53:31. Trick the eye: The amount of space you have and what the eye perceives aren’t necessarily the same thing. Play with the boundaries of perception by tiling the side of your bath and the wall with the same design – it makes it hard to distinguish where each begins, thereby making your space feel larger. Marble is particularly effective here, as it looks almost like one huge sheet and the individual tiles aren’t very obvious.

Start tiling from above the mantel, or, if you don’t have one, start from a baton levelled with a spirit level (not the skirting or floor as these can be uneven). Apply a thick layer of tile adhesive to the wall using a tile float (a metal spatula with a serracted edge). Use tile spacers, or, if the tiles are uneven, judge the space by eye. Grout tiles after placing them in position using a grouting float.

The unloved bedroom was given a new lease of life when an interiors company asked if the couple wanted to test out a revolutionary new product – British Gypsum’s Thistle Magnetic Plaster. ‘I was spurred on to start a full makeover,’ says one of the pair. ‘In the end I decided to use the magnetic plaster on the wall behind our bed so that I can change pictures regularly without having to drill and fill in holes.’ Before that, though, they had to decide how they wanted the rest of the room to look.
Averyl Dufour Dining Room, 2017-09-21 20:41:27. Strong use of colour is not for the faint hearted, but a great way to create a dramatic dining experience. Be daring with colour on both the walls and floors, or for a more subtle approach, try a bright rug under the table to help define the dining zone, or create focal points with graphic paintings and prints. For an atmospheric dining experience, a range of tones in the same colour will unite the entire space, while a dark painted ceiling will give the room a cosy feel. If you have a dado rail, consider wallpaper above it and a deep colour below for a cocooning effect.

White highlights provide a gentle lift, while distressed finishes toughen up the look (just a smidgen). Pile on the comfort with layers of throws and cushions and you’ll have nailed the cottage bedroom look.
Averyl Dufour Kitchen, 2017-09-21 20:41:06. Having moved out for three months during the worst of the building work, the couple returned to a house that was still in a complete state. ‘It had no rear and we could only use two bedrooms and a bathroom, all of them crammed with furniture and things from downstairs,’ they say. ‘For two months, we were also without a kitchen and managed by doing most of the cooking on the barbecue.
Averyl Dufour Bathroom, 2017-09-21 20:53:22. Use the same tiles on the floor and walls: A clever trick to making a small bathroom look bigger is to use the same tiles on the walls and the floor. Not only does the natural stone in this family bathroom add a spa-style touch, but the continuous run of tiles creates a spacious feel, along with the wall-hung fixtures that save on floor area. If natural stone feels too neutral, you can easily pep it up with strong colour pops with your towels, storage and accessories – an on-budget way to add personality to your bathroom.
