Create a relaxed dining area with a micro art gallery. Hang an informal grid of postcards and keep a stack of spares handy so that friends can leave a message on memorable occassions. The Jerez dining table is from Habitat and the Bertoia side chairs are from Knoll.
Stud wall window seat
Sculpt a giant porthole-style window into an extra-deep stud wall to create a dual-functiom room divider that allows the light to flow through.
Make a strong graphic statement by filling a wall with framed album covers. Vertical white stripes divide the space effectively and provide a punchy contrast for the bright coral background. Album frames from Art Vinyl.
Tease architectural detailing out of the shadows with contrasting colour to frame the space.
Try using a decorative motif to create a feature wall in the bedroom. This pretty parasols wallpaper from Cole & Son gives the room an Oriental feel.
Work a little style magic by incorporating a theatrical lamp and a come-hither screen into your scheme. Abracadabra!
Find the screen at Ligne Roset at Harrods.
Florals don’t have to be dainty. Try playing with scale and blow up an image of a single bloom to make a dramatic, one-off statement.

Family album wall
Display all your happiest memories with this photo frame wallpaper from Bodie & Fou. The monochrome colour scheme looks great next to a bold colour like Imperial purple. Mismatch the size and alignment of your pictures for a fun, eclectic look.
Sticky wall frieze
Paint walls and doors in the same subtle shade, then apply a scattering of textural wall stickers – like these from Lelievre– across the area to create a simple frieze. A thin, painted stripe of colour down the centre of the door promotes a more abstract style.
