Zoning within a larger area, a sleek bronze, two-shade light fitting and a neutral rug placed beneath the dark wooden table serve to focus attention on the dining area within this large extension space, creating an island around which a seating area and kitchen unobtrusively sit.

Start with a neutral backdrop throughout and add hits of colour across the scheme using soft furnishings. Keep the practical kitchen a defining monochrome and then merge into cool subtle grey and pastels for a seating zone (this one benefits from an abundance of natural light). Finally, bring a reclaimed dining set back to life with co-ordinating seat pads in vibrant jewel tones for an uplifting eclectic finish that works.

Don’t be afraid of introducing pattern into a small space behind a desk, as an interesting wallpaper or mural will cleverly distract from a messy desk and can play with the perception of space. If wallpaper isn’t your thing, you could use a pinboard, wall-mounted clipboards or rows of curtain wire with small pegs to hang up inspirational tear sheets, photos and postcards to make an interesting backdrop to your study area.

Start with an all-white backdrop and paper one wall with a budget wallpaper that really stands out. Keep bed linen simple, but add texture with a faux fur striped throw. Repurpose modern plastic stools as side tables and finish the look with metallic cushions for a little understated glamour.
Averyl Dufour Bathroom, 2017-08-26 04:39:30. One of the best ways to disguise a small bathroom is to create interest and a striking wallpaper is ideal for this. If you have a bath or shower in the room (rather than it being a cloakroom), make sure you buy one that’s made specifically for bathrooms, which will cope with the damp, warm conditions.

Add a hint of colour to a white suite: While a white bathroom suite is the best choice for opening up a small space, it can sometimes feel a little stark if the whole room is white. That’s why a hint of colour on the walls is the perfect compromise: light enough to create an airy feel, but with bags more character. Here, the storage alcoves were built from tongue-and-groove panelling, then painted in white to contrast with the raspberry walls and striking cobalt-blue tiles.

Think pink, as general rule, the stronger the pink the less of it you need, so try a shot of shocking cerise with black and white to create a sophisticated look that’s oozing with energy.

Team with black accents to take the look from girly to glam. An opulent orb pendant light will lean the look towards opulent 1950s Hollywood.

Along the wall runs a handy storage unit that doubles as a side table. Above, cool cube shelving keeps favourite reads out of younger hands, while lending an artistic feel to the space. Geometric tiles have been used on both splashbacks, behind the sink and oven. ‘These tiles feature our favourite things – colour and mid-century style,’ say the owners.

The original kitchen was tiny with only enough space for one person. ‘One of us was always alone cooking dinner, while the rest of the family were in another room,’ say the owners. ‘But now the new kitchen is complete, the children love running in and out of the garden and we can have huge parties and talk to our guests while we cook.’ The other thing that is great in this sociable set-up is the wine fridge and rack – their clever placement in the island makes it easy for guests to help themselves.

But, because of the way that it subtly balances masculine urban materials and a soft colour palette, it works. The simple lines and cool colours create a serene space with a hint of luxury, and the result is a decorating scheme that looks equally at home in in a warehouse conversion or a country cottage.
