Al­low space be­tween book­cases for a roller-blind pro­jec­tor screen, as here. But, once the cred­its have rolled, a plain white panel won’t look so hot! Pull it up to re­veal an arty wall-hang­ing – just ex­traw­ide fab­ric you buy by the me­tre, which you line, and hang from a rod!

To soften brick walls, opt for deep and squashy so­fas with curved arms. Re­peat the curves else­where – the round cof­fee ta­ble, stool and dec­o­ra­tive ac­cents. Nod to in­dus­trial style and in­clude mood light­ing that would be right at home in a fac­tory.

Place any­thing be­hind glass and it be­comes a highly-prized ob­ject, so put a cu­rio cab­i­net on the top of your shop­ping list. And, these flat-pack beau­ties are low enough to al­low you to lean and ca­su­ally over­lap dif­fer­ent size prints against the wall and each other.

If you be­lieve brick walls are a de­sign draw­back, think again, for they’ll add warmth and much tex­tu­ral in­ter­est. The im­pact of overly large ex­panses of brick­work can be lim­ited with fur­ni­ture. No need for a ren­dered or lime-washed brick dis­guise. Yay!
