What Houzz contributors are saying:
Be nostalgicA trio of flying fowls screams middle-class suburbia. First produced in 1930s in England, the ceramic collection was an affordable and popular home decor item that secured its iconic status in the post-war era.
Select functional furnitureIf you’re confined to one room you’ll want to ensure that every piece of furniture in the room serves a functional purpose, and that purpose is usually storage. Like my antique dresser (described above), choose items that prove why they’re taking up precious cubic metres in your only space. If you have a chair, ensure it’s uncluttered enough to sit on, and that your desk is an inviting place to be. Try not to fall into the habit (as I have regularly done) of using these items not so much to store things in, but to drape things over and pile papers on. It’s a guaranteed way to transform your room into what could be mistaken for a flea market.
