Sneak a peek at this nature-inspired bedroom

When the owners of this house moved in, this bedroom was a completely blank canvas – it had brand-new fitted carpets but everything else was neutral. The couple didn’t have any furniture to fill it with, but rather than rush to fill the room, they decided to sleep in it as it was so they could get a better feel for the space and what decor would work best in it. They were quite clear on what they wanted, in principle: a hotel-style bed, lots of clutter-eliminating storage and a dressing table too. It was asking a great deal from a fairly small room, but by taking their time the couple found solutions.

‘For a while it felt rather odd sleeping in an empty box. But it did give us time to work out what we wanted. We knew everything would benefit from a fresh coat of paint, so we used a crisp cream colour on the walls and painted the woodwork glossy white. Although the carpet wasn’t my choice, it seemed silly to change it. So we gave it a good clean, and even at that stage the room began to feel more homely.’
