CURATE AND CONCEAL
‘My advice to anyone living in a small property is to plan for storage that disappears into the walls, rather than relying on bulky cupboards. There is hidden storage in my loft, including a 2.5-metre-tall unit with white sliding doors. That’s where we keep things like bedding, books and DVDS. Storage should be part of the space – it should never eat into it. That said, don’t be afraid to display the things you love: that is what makes a home.’ Find a similar school gym bench ( bottom right) at Lassco, and try Ayre & Co for a selection of taxidermy and glass bell jars.
