Restored Country Home Broken Up By a Series of Linked VolumeTraditional Bedroom, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Add personality to a loftLoft conversions can sometimes suffer from looking a bit blank and bland. In this stylish space, a wall of panelling behind the bedhead instantly adds character and personality. Breaking it up with intricate carved areas introduces texture and an exotic holiday getaway feel. However, keeping it white means it doesn’t ‘crowd’ the room.
Go for neutral décorIf you have divergent tastes, don’t fall out over decorating schemes and pattern clashes. Instead, head for the middle ground with a neutral colour scheme that you’re both happy with.Pick out a pale backdrop of buttermilk, hessian and greige and layer with luxurious fabrics, such as silk, linen and fine cotton, to keep it interesting. Add some creative lighting that will cast shadows in all the right places.
Consider decorative panellingWithout a focal point, such as a fireplace, a newly converted loft can end up feeling a little bland and box-like. So why not consider a feature wall of wood panelling or fretwork to add character to your period loft? This could replicate panelling elsewhere in the house, such as the hallway and landing, to create cohesion thoughout.
