Feature wall is the future; tricks of the trade.

My home is a 1930s semi with a fireplace in my bedroom. My bed is against the opposite wall because the electric points are there. Should this be the feature wall, or the fireplace? If the fireplace, should I paint or paper the alcoves or just the chimney breast? There are no set rules. The key is to consider how you would like to see your room. You have a fireplace, which you can see from your bed. The wall behind you is only on view when you're not in bed. I love to see a chimney breast as a feature wall, especially if it's wallpapered. But paint the alcoves instead and they act as a frame. You can also add interest to the bedhead wall with a dramatic headboard, stickers or, as in our picture, lots of framed prints.


Hanging pictures on the bedhead wall adds interest
