A layered effect
In a space with an all-white palette, it’s a good idea to use layers of accessories to add interest to your décor – a mirror will add depth and life, says Cape interior designer Marcelle Crowther of Hocus Interior Design Studio. In her bedroom, the focal wall features floor-to-ceiling design elements that really pack a punch: there’s an oversized headboard as well as mirrors behind the Perspex panels on either side of the bed. Marcelle drew the intricate design for the panels on a computer programme and had them laser-cut. “Just make sure you know where the electrical sockets are in the wall before tackling something like this,” she advises.
