    Double-height windowsThis room in a Scottish castle certainly has the wow factor. The windows are double height and shaped into a corner bay. The curtains and coordinating pelmet demonstrate the importance of proportion and scale with any window treatment. A pelmet should be one fifth to one sixth the overall drop of the curtains. (Even if you don’t have double-height windows, the same pelmet-to-curtain ratio still applies.) The tiebacks create drape and a waistline effect to the curtains and, in this case, are set just above head height for anyone luxuriating on the gorgeous window seat.

    The front door opens onto the morning room, so called because, according to Nicola, when the sun streams in, ‘it’s a beautiful room in which to sit with a coffee and a newspaper’. Window seats conceal cast iron radiators, so even on cold winter mornings it’s a lovely place to curl up. The bergère suite came from their old home, and the stripes contrast nicely with the floral wallpaper and rug. The black in the room adds a gothic touch. ‘I love moody rooms,’ Nicola explains.Check out more monochrome schemes
