Attic rooms are the perfect place to create a guest or spare bedroom. By their very nature, they tend only to be used occasionally, so sloping ceilings and a confined space is less likely to be an issue for the user. Build a snug retreat under the eaves for romantic country charm. Off-white tongue and groove creates a charismatic backdrop for an inviting bed dressed with plenty of linen layers and a soft lambswool blanket. A vibrant pillowcase and quilt lifts the scheme while open shelves with decorative objects enhance the homely feel. Storage aplenty, such as the deep, under-bed draw, keeps the space uncluttered.
A comfortable bed is a must, especially if your room is often used by guests – invest in a new mattress if you can’t stretch to a bedstead. Choose a strong classic style that won’t date and position centrally for easy access and maximum impact. A neutral colour palette will please most guests and can be easily modified for individuals. Bring in welcoming colour and texture by layering fresh white bed linen with cushions and throws. Here, additional reclaimed furniture adds to the charming character.
