Interior Design Ideas

Learn the basics of home decorating, including where to find ideas, design principles.
59. Create a cosy reading nook
If your room is lacking space for both cupboards and seating, take a leaf out of the book of the late Helen Green of Helen Green Designs. In her sons bedroom, smart storage space, with a recess for a small sofa, solves the problem. Spotlights have been added to the underside of the middle shelf to create a cozy, well lit nook for reading. The tongue and grove effect on the walls, is echoed on the sturdy bunk beds to the left of the picture.

67. Clever bunkbeds
Transforming this tiny attic room into a childrens room for two required some ingenuity. Enter Kate Earle of Todhunter Earle who designed these overlapping bunk beds as a clever space saving solution.

72. What lies beneath
By using Farrow & Balls All White paint and incorporating storage under the hallway stairs, this family home measuring a snug 90 square metres and designed by Eve Mercier doesnt sacrifice space or style.

41. Compact cupboard kitchen
A cupboard kitchen takes the place of exposed kitchen units a practical and good looking alternative you can see the kitchen when its all folded up here. A drop leaf dining table can be discreetly folded against a wall when not in use.
Compact Kitchen, including stainless steel splashback with shelves and worktop with integral sink, drainer and two electric rings,549 as pictured, at Space Savers. For full credits, visit here.

35. Blue mood
Wondering how to fit a bath and a shower in to a small, sloped attic space? Take inspiration from this design by Todhunter Earle for a chalet in Chamonix. The space is enlivened with iridescent tiles by French company Emery & Cie.

24. Small wonder1
This tiny attic bathroom in the country cottage of designer Paolo Moschino makes maximum use of the space, without scrimping on style. In order to allow room for the sink and bath, they are cleverly fused together.

43. Tiny cottage kitchen
The great thing about a tiny kitchen? It can be so cosy. Here, a small sink Udden, ?105 at Ikea is paired with a William Yeoward linen curtain Khalana in marine, ?55 a metre.

101. Small hallway
To keep a hallway light and airy paint the walls white but direct attention to the floor by introducing a bold colour. Stripes, painted in varying directions, play with our perception of space and diagonal stripes give the impression of stretching out a narrow room. To enhance this effect, reverse their direction halfway through.

81. Mini monochrome
This charming one bedroom flat in the picturesque village of Thorpeness, Suffolk makes the most of a small space by sticking to a mismatched monochrome scheme and clever architectural details.

51. Look for the light
Where does the light in the room come from, and how can you maximise it? These are the first things you should think of when decorating a small room. Interior designer Ann Boyds mirror panelling is a masterstroke. It adds a huge amount of depth. I suggest putting it near or opposite a window; youll be amazed at how much bigger the room feels, and how they bounce the light around, she says. Getting the spaces between the panels right is so important. This look is all about symmetry and it is imperative that the application is scrupulously neat. A fresh palate and delicate furniture are the finishing touches. A dark, poky corner, becomes a light, calm space.
