A shared space
is about more and not less. I'm Ray Coleman.
I work for IKEA as an interior designer. I'm going to give you some tips and
ideas on how to achieve your own space. In my first example, I've started
with storage as a room divider. I've added bedside tables
to increase the storage and to personalise the space more. I've added two beds
to strengthen the symmetry of the room. Textile and children's toys
personalise the room. The rugs and colour coordinate
the different personalities that live in the room,
you get two rooms in one. So in our second example, here we started
with a long, narrow room. I've put the beds
headboard to headboard for maximised floor space. To create privacy in this room, I used a textile curtain
as a room divider.
We can pull the curtain and the room
is open for the kids to play. The starting point in this room was that I wanted to create
a cosy corner for a young girl. To create this cosiness,
I've added textile over the bed and to the sides. But the family's growing and she now
shares her room with her little brother, so I created
a cosy little space for them each. Actually, we did this room for real. Both have shelves over their bed
to put their favourite things on. The toys can be stored
under the bed in boxes that suit the personalities
of the children.
So here we have it.
Comfort and companionship, plus your own space
and your own things is the best of both worlds..
