Don’t overdo it – a standout island unit will suffice. Pinks are from the warm side of the colour spectrum, so you can afford to introduce plenty of creamy background shades that will keep the décor on the sophisticated side of ‘girly’, and the overall look fresh.

A black and white scheme is always a sophisticated choice for a kitchen scheme and, whether you favour a traditional or modern scheme, monochrome is a palette that works perfectly both ways. From a chequerboard tiled floor for a 1950s diner feel, a black range cooker against classic white cabinetry for a country ambience, or the new wave of graphic patterns, outlines and silhouettes, there’s a black and white design to suit any scheme.

Dark walls are also great for showing off a display of favourite objects – try a deep shade of blue as a backdrop to vintage lighting, antique prints and bric-a-brac.
Laurent Bathroom, 2017-08-21 17:43:08. Paper a cloakroom, 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.
Laurent Kitchen, 2017-08-20 03:19:07. Begin by separating your kitchen into different zones for cooking and work (food prep and washing). Your cooking zone includes your oven, hob or range cooker, an extractor fan and a microwave if you have one. Make sure this area is not in the pathway to a door or blocking the main thoroughfare through the room – handling hot cookware while people are trying to walk past you is a recipe for disaster.
Laurent Bathroom, 2017-08-22 10:22:02. Think in twos, where space is tight, opt for an over-shower bath that delivers the best of both worlds. Rather than positioning your shower against the short side of the bath, try placing it along the longer side for a more luxe feel. Use a bold tile design around the bath to contrast with the rest of the room.
Laurent Living Room, 2017-08-22 10:20:44. Loft apartment living area with oversized artwork. In a spacious loft or penthouse apartment, furniture and accessories can sometimes look a little lost. Solve this problem by going for statement pieces such as a fabulous floor lamp, eye catching mural or bold geometric rug. For a fresh take on traditional flooring, try the latest grey tones.

Hardworking living space storage, clutter can ruin the look of an open-plan living room, so it’s important to factor in ample storage when planning your layout. Hardworking units offer the necessary storage space while not distracting from the overall scheme. The L-shaped sofa creates a defined seating zone in the open-plan space, while accessories and soft furnishings in luxurious fabrics soften the look.

Laurent Dining room, 2017-08-22 10:22:10. Regardless of whether you live in a period or contemporary home, you can’t go wrong with classic design and in a dining room this can be enhanced with dramatic colour schemes, opulent textiles and elegant tableware. A statement table and chairs is the obvious place to start, so whether you choose a striking dark wood antique, a traditional country farmhouse feel or a pretty Scandi-inspired design, you can then build your chosen classic dining room scheme around it.
