Wooden flooring can give a clean, spacious look, but unless you have underfloor heating, carpeting is the cosier option, bearing in mind that you’ll be walking around in bare feet at least some of the time. Another point to consider, if you’re a light sleeper or live in a neighbourhood where it can be noisy at night, is that carpets can help to muffle sounds, whereas wooden floors won’t. That said, you can always achieve a happy medium with polished floorboards strewn with luxurious, toe-friendly rugs.
‘I got it off Ebay for £200’ says designer Diana Sieff of the four-poster bed in the bedroom of her Oxfordshire home. ‘I like using big furniture in small spaces, because it gives the illusion that the room is bigger.

The children’s bedrooms in Keith McNally’s Notting Hill home allow for storage and organisation – as well as charming touches – like this Toadstool lamp, £55 at White Rabbit England.

In the master bedroom, the hand forged iron ‘Diego bed’ by Anne-Marie takes centre-stage.
