Good Questions

Q: After 5 blissful years living in the countryside where living spaces are cheap and spacious, I have decided to return to my home, London, and move back in with my mum! I will be moving from a two bedroom flat that I have spent the last couple of years furnishing to a bedroom that is 6 foot by just over 6 foot.

Obviously the furniture, appliances, books, and excessive shoe collection all have to go, but do you have any clever ideas for furnishing? Cabin or loft beds? Storage? I do have a single bed that fits in the room, but that leaves little space for clothing storage. Any creative ideas would be amazing!
