Once the dumping ground for the ironing board and that netball trophy you just can’t bring yourself to chuck out, the spare bedroom has taken the decor baton from the downstairs loo. It’s the ultimate setting in which to peacock your design nous, as the once sorry rooms being turned into lavishly layered havens around the country attest.

“People are enjoying entertaining and are wanting to create a luxurious experience for their guests,” says Mary Graham, co-founder of the London interior design studio Salvesen Graham. “And while they generally want their principal bedroom to be a calming retreat, the guest room is the perfect place to indulge all their decorating fantasies.”
