Make a small room feel bigger by limiting furniture to essential pieces only. This gunmetal bedstead and preloved cabinet look extra stylish for having all the space to themselves. A cool grey palette helps to open up the room too. If you can, keep the space under the bed clear – it’s a good spot for a guest’s suitcase – and give your minimalist scheme a little atmosphere by hanging cotton ball fairy lights around artwork or a bedstead.
Offset a lavish velvet headboard with a two-tone paint effect on walls and woodwork. The impressive bedhead upholstered in a dark floral pattern is the focal point of the room, and a bold mix of oversized bloom fabrics edged with fringing, studding and embroidery creates a playful vibe. A clever paint effect forms a graphic divide of the room, with the lighter upper section calming and brightening the space.
If you want to be the perfect host for your guests, there’s nothing more luxurious than showing them to their own, beautifully decorated bedroom. Providing your guest with all of their favourite home comforts – beautiful bedding, plenty of storage and even a light to read by at night, will all add up to a wonderful experience for your loved ones.
If you don’t have the room to create a spare place just for guests, why not partition off another room to create a small area for guests to sleep? Choosing to section off part of your living room and sticking to a minimalist design won’t take up much space, but will mean your home instantly becomes more welcoming to loved ones.
