The white wash
One way to deal with a small space effectively is through harnessing the power of colour. Designer and author Claire Lloyd and her artist husband Matthew Usman have chosen a chaste palate that virtually erases the perimeters of this tiny bedroom. Painting out the awkwardly placed window also helps to give the room a feeling of cohesion. The eye is then drawn irresistibly to the few notes of colour and detail that the room has to offer, meaning that fewer decorative flourishes are needed to give impact and character. Texture is key here to avoid the room looking sparse. When making a small space totally white opt for the natural warmth given by wood or roughly hewn stone as a base.
