As well as being a place to sleep, the couple wanted their bedroom to be a peaceful sanctuary – ‘a stylish room we felt good about, not the jumbled, cluttered, untidy space it was.’ And as one half of the couple is a professional blogger, she thought the large room would be a great space to create a work area too.

Paint the inside the same colour as your walls for a co-ordinated look, or leave as nature intended for a rustic vibe. Introduce colour with accessories to lift the scheme. Keep an eye on your recycling for glass bottles in pretty shapes and designs, soak in hot water and remove any sticky labels, then give them a whole new life as mini flower or bud vases.

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.
Averyl Dufour Kitchen, 2017-08-29 08:53:54. In terms of decor, the couple chose simple Shaker-style units in an easy-going grey, to keep the look light and fresh. And the owners now have the island they had always wanted. ‘We didn’t hold back on size,’ they say. ‘The island is big enough to have our fridge, freezer and dishwasher built in, plus a cupboard for the recycling, so it’s a multifunctional cook’s zone.’ To the right is a counter-top cupboard that holds everything the family need for speedy breakfasts in the morning.

The vintage metal table and chair are a little rough around the edges but that just adds to the charm. To add softness, hang full-length curtains featuring flowers in bloom at the French windows and top bare floorboards with a textured rug.

Let it soak for an hour, boil the kettle, empty and rinse, and don’t forget the bins, bins can harbour odours long after you’ve changed the bag. To avoid this, wash and dry the bin, and sprinkle a few spoonfuls of baking powder in the bottom. It really works.
Averyl Dufour Bathroom, 2017-08-27 04:34:08. Furnish to scale: Large items of furniture can dwarf a small room so always buy pieces that suit the scale of your space. In a small bathroom, stick to the basics of a vanity unit and storage rack that you can either hang on the wall or rest on the edge of a bath. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t pack on the personality. Paint a vanity unit in your favourite colour and opt for patterned tiles on the floor.

A downstairs cloakroom is a prime space to use wallpaper, as bathrooms with a shower or bath will require specialist paper to prevent steam damaging it.

This fabulously creative idea requires minimal effort and time – just choose a wallpaper in line with your budget. Look for a design that emphasises the scale and height of the ceiling while providing a striking focal point. For a seamless look, it may help to replace obtrusive doorknobs or handles.

Exposed brick walls and a ceiling-mounted rack for pots and pans play their part in the overall look of this country kitchen scheme, too. A mishmash of styles is important here to achieve a lived-in style. You don’t want it to appear too ‘planned out.
