Very clever layout on such a small site. Not everyone likes a spiral staircase, but sometimes the space calls for it.

I also really love the skylight over the bath, it would be all the more relaxing staring up at the stars during your bath.

What a beautiful, thoughtful renovation. Thanks for the very thorough article, & including floorplan, which really helps envisage how the spaces in this lovely home work.

Hi Alana - thank you for your interest in the bed head and side tables! These were designed by us and made bespoke for the project by the builder's joiner (Built by Guild). We had a sloping wall to deal with so the depth of the bedhead helped set the bed out from the wall the right distance!

Unfortunately anything similar in solid Vic Ash is quite expensive - refer or

I did find a slightly more affordable rustic version from The TimberBedhead company ( ) which might be a more affordable version (they may even customise one for you to add in the 'bookshelf' in the bedhead....).

You can find also find timber bed frames + bedsides from places like RJ Living, Brosa (who also do a separate bed head 'Frank') or West Elm.

If you don't have any luck please let me know - we could always ask our joiner to price one for you to the same design.

(Also Hi to everyone else who commented - and apologies as I know you will all get this comment in your inbox. The skylight is a personal favourite of mine too and I am hoping we get to design this feature again. The planning was very very tight! Hence the circular stair - which are the most space efficient by half. As long as the stair void is wider that the furniture item it's normally quite easy for the professional movers to move the furniture in, but definitely harder for DIY, and certainly not to everyone's taste).

Good Luck! Kate
