How to create memorable rooms

> Choose a focus-point, such as a wall unit, fireplace, bed or fantastic view, to give your room definition.

> Use a variety of lighting. You’ll need reading lamps as well as mood-setting ambient lighting.

> Define how you’ll be using the room, then choose furniture and accessories that are well-suited to your favorite activities.

> Make it your own. For example, if you’re a light-hearted person, think about an airy room that suits your personality.
