Private Theater
"There's nothing like a screening room to up the ante in the home glamour stakes. If you don't have a big enough space, then look at using a spare guest bedroom and turning it into your own private sanctuary," recommends Bullard.

"I love to make huge, queen-sized bed deep upholstered platforms (that double as a guest bed when needed) and line it against a wall opposite to as giant a tv as you can fit," he says. "Mound it with pillows and soft throw blankets, a series of low tables clustered with candles and candy jars, put blackout blinds at the windows and hey, presto! Your very own screening room experience."
