Make an eye-catching first impression
Hang a dramatic wallpaper
Using a dramatic pictorial wallpaper will create a striking first impression. Consolidate the look with furniture that picks out an accent colour and add accessories that enhance the theme. Keep the space uncluttered but inviting, finished with hardwearing flooring in eye-catching colours.
HOW TO MAKE IT WORK
• Start with a favourite theme. For this scheme we chose birds, and selected artwork and accessories to enhance it.
• Choose pieces that are suited to a limited space, such as the chaise, the mirror and the sleek storage cabinet, which has space-saving sliding doors.
• Binding a stair runner in an accent colour taken from the wallpaper ties the look together and provides a neat finishing touch.
• A wallpaper with a shimmering finish helps lighten darker spaces.
