Laurent Living Room, August 22nd , 2017. If you have a bit more space to play with, bring the furniture away from the walls to create a cosy sitting area. This works especially well in open-plan living spaces, helping to zone the relaxation area from the thoroughfares or dining, cooking and study areas. If the back of your sofa isn’t much to look at, hide it behind a low console table topped with decorative objects. A good rug can also help to zone a living space, making it feel more intimate. Place the front legs of sofas and chairs on the rug, leaving the back legs off, to give mismatched furniture a more unified feel.
Laurent Living Room, August 22nd , 2017. Mediterranean-inspired living room. As one of the most social spaces in the house, your living room needs to look good, work hard and function well. Before you begin any work, take a litle time to work out how the space functions for you. Is it a relaxing haven, and entertaining space of family central? Here, an elegant fusion of old and new will give a timeless feel to your living room. A pale wood floor reflects light from the windows and hits of strong yellow keep the look glam, not gloomy.
Laurent Bedroom, August 22nd , 2017. Alpine lodge, après-ski anyone? Well, who wouldn’t if you had a place like this to come back to after a day on the slopes. Materials matter most here, with reclaimed wood, a concrete console and that fab faux-fur throw. When it gets too hot, just slide open those doors and chill. Princess in the tower, remodelling a loft space is commonplace, but this attic conversion takes the design to new heights. No plaster ceiling boards here – the living space stretches up to the eaves. And, to add an offbeat element to the contemporary interior, the Gothic-style screen is perfect for hiding behind before your prince turns up for his kiss. Mwahh!
Laurent Living Room, August 22nd , 2017. Zoned living room, how you arrange furniture and flooring, especially rugs, can help divide a large space into zones. In this living room, two facing sofas nestled by the fire and anchored by a bold rug create a cosy place in which to relax and socialise, while the storage area beyond could be used as a media room with television and technology hidden from view when not in use.
Laurent Bathroom, August 22nd , 2017. Think in twos, where space is tight, opt for an over-shower bath that delivers the best of both worlds. Rather than positioning your shower against the short side of the bath, try placing it along the longer side for a more luxe feel. Use a bold tile design around the bath to contrast with the rest of the room.
Laurent Dining room, August 23rd , 2017. Classic blue dining room with floral curtains.

Laurent Bedroom, August 22nd , 2017. A snuggly rug, good idea as it is to have all-wood floors to make things easier to clean, in winter, your feet won’t take too kindly to stepping on to a hard, cold floor (or a splinter!). Make the getting-out-of-bed experience a whole lot more forgiving by treating yourself to a plush rug – there’s nothing like swinging out of bed and twiddling your toes in those fluffy fibres.
Laurent Bathroom, August 21st , 2017. Make space beneath the eaves, compact fittings are a big help in awkward-shaped loft spaces. Don’t worry about trying to fit a bath – go for a luxurious glass shower enclosure instead. It’s common with loft conversions and attics to box in parts of the room that have a reduced ceiling height for storage. But instead, why not look at ways to work around the reduced heights? A toilet or basin is a smart idea.
