Decorating Tip From David Hicks


David Hicks, the popular British decorator, had an intuitive sense for furniture placement. One idea he liked to use was placing the bed in the center of the room. He did this in his own bedroom with four matching Empire chairs at each corner. To give warmth he had a fabulous canopy and bed linens made from his line of printed fabric.

  1. I like the bed in the centre of the room – and not always squashed up against the wall……….do you have more on four-poster beds?
