Designer pieces offer storage for equal parts neatness and visual flair
Use light paints, or large prints if you’re wallpapering, to suggest spaciousness – small, repeating prints and dark tones draw a room inwards, but lighter tones and larger prints add airiness
Choose a bed with built-in storage to put away bulky items such as spare duvets and pillows.
Freestanding rails embody minimalist chic for a place to hang clothes – complement using light tones for walls and soft furnishings to open up the room.
If you want bright colours, splash them around your room. Accent cushions or rugs work well to add colour without drawing in the space.
