Take inspiration from this transformed loft bedroom

When they moved into their new family home, these owners were delighted with all the extra space they had gained. However, they were faced with doing a lot of work to bring their tired looking house up to date. The previous owners had converted the loft into a double bedroom and all the basics were in place – it was just the decor that needed their attention. The couple were keen to make the most of the spacious bedroom and wanted to stamp their personality on it. ‘We wanted to create a soft industrial look and the key to this was the exposed brick wall.’

Luckily the owners were able to use some bricks left over from a friend’s building job to carry out this work and the sloped back wall was clad over a weekend. ‘It’s quite easy to create this look,’ says the owner, ‘and you don’t even need the whole brick.’
