If you have a wardrobe as well-curated as your home, why not put it on display? Using a clothes rack is a great storage option in small rooms, as it leaves more open space, and can be more practical for those who like easy access to their garments. Prepare to go minimal with your clothes though, as most racks are around 100 to 130cm in width.
The bathroom might seem like a room that can remain fairly featureless, but a well-designed bathroom is the calling card of a truly accomplished interior designer. Aspire to give each bathroom its own unique personality – incorporating aspects like colour, artwork and fun personal details.
A simple way to ensure that your Christmas decor matches with your existing interior is to choose a colour that is prominent in you home and incorporate it into your Christmas colour scheme.

Do you know the secretive history of this common decorative feature? The rose has symbolised secrecy since Roman times, and hanging a rose over a meeting table became a sign of confidentiality and free speech in the Middle Ages. This later led to rose designs being physically carved into the ceilings, and over time the phrase came to refer to this ornate moulding (whether or not a rose actually features in the design!)…
While often overlooked, the perfect bedhead can be the standout feature of a room! Styles range from rectangular panels to ornate curves, including quilted or panelled designs, or even shelving. Popular fabrics include linen for a minimal look, or velvet for those who prefer to go full luxe. However, a simple timber style can be just as striking!
Buying art might seem like an ordeal, but it doesn’t have to be. If your client is unsure about making a big investment, art prints are perfect for adding a touch of interest without the big price tag. They can also be easily swapped out according to changing trends.
