WOW FACTOR: Two-space living

Good Homes Roomsets Bedroom

Image: Andrew Boyd

With more people working from home than ever before, finding extra space can be tough. Our stylists have created a wall behind an oak-framed classic bed, and positioned a desk that can double as a workstation or dressing table behind it. The wall in this area is painted in buttercup yellow to separate the space from the paler colour of the rest of the room, and two gorgeous rugs in different colours, patterns and textures give even clearer definition. On the sanctuary side, a neutral palette of whimsical whites, pretty pinks and refined creams sets the tone for complete relaxation. Finishing touches include tactile bedding, a gorgeous chunky-knit throw, furry chairs and fringed wall art.
