Dare to go dramatic with furnishings, whether you’ve got a bedroom up in the eaves of a barn conversion or in an old country manor, this traditional space is an appealing option. The sheer scale of the original beams means that your furniture can be more dramatic, and still not look OTT; a brass bedstead, crystal chandelier and carved baroque-style armchair look right at home in this attic bedroom. The natural wood floor just adds to the timeless elegance.
Love the idea of country-cottage chic, but want something a bit less full-on? Then neutrals could be for you. In a scheme like this, it’s all about adding interest with textures, from embroidered cushions to waffley throws. This pretty bedroom is also lucky enough to benefit from structural focal points such as the sloped ceiling and beams, which lend it lots of character.
Reinvent unused objects, Turn a wooden box into a nifty bedside table. Paint the inside the same colour as your walls for a co-ordinated look, or leave as nature intended for a rustic vibe. Introduce colour with accessories to lift the scheme. Keep an eye on your recycling for glass bottles in pretty shapes and designs, soak in hot water and remove any sticky labels, then give them a whole new life as mini flower or bud vases.
