CU­RATE AND CON­CEAL

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Sourcebook | Bedrooms -

‘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.

‘I AM CARE­FUL NOT TO OVER­WHELM THE LOFT, BUT AT THE SAME TIME I DON’T WANT TO LIVE IN A STER­ILE, IN­DUS­TRIAL EN­VI­RON­MENT – IT’S ECLEC­TIC BUT UNI­FIED’
