Translating full-blown interior design schemes into small spaces can be challenging, however with the right combination of clever storage solutions and proportionate furniture, balance can be retained without necessarily having to shy away from colour, pattern and personality.

Hide a multitude of sins behind clever storage solutions that also masquerade as feature walls. Think painted wall panelling in warm neutral colours or mirrored accents.  Decorum Est’s bespoke eglomise panels are ideal for wardrobe doors, as they can hide a barrage of clutter whilst creating an opulent and light reflecting feature. In keeping with this element of luxury, marble flooring is another great way to evoke feelings of space. Look no further than Decorum Est’s collection of Italian marble in an exquisite range of tones and styles to compliment any surface.

When executed well, decorative shelving can be both practical and compelling. Create a bookcase beneath the stairs, or strategically place a collection of shelves in a bathroom or bedroom area, laden with beautiful perfume bottles and beauty essentials. Decorum Est's Contemporary Ceramic tiles are ideal for worktops, alternatively select a variation of metallic colours from this collection to create an eye-catching wall feature of ceramic display shelves

Decorum Dare You: For a limited living space, introduce colour and personality through furnishings and accessories. A dramatic use of geometric patterns teamed with modern furniture creates a playful yet sophisticated effect. Select small occasional tables with patterned surfaces and scatter between dainty armchairs in plush fabrics.
