The average person spends around 25 years sleeping. Add on other activities in the bedroom (make up and lazing around - of course) means that over a third of our lives is spent in the bedroom.

So, main rooms should be welcoming and cosy with warm colours, beautiful textiles and tactile fixtures - making whatever you want to do in your bedroom as comfy as possible.

As for the spare bedroom - have fun with it - because you don't have to sleep there (very often).
