Deep purples, colour blocking is a great technique for replicating the relaxed feel of freestanding furniture within the more practical, easy-to-clean reality of a fitted kitchen.

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.

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.

First, you’ll need a general light source – a ceiling pendant light, for example – that will light the room at darker times of day when the household are milling about.

An adjustable reading lamp next to a comfy chair will allow readers to focus on their book without dazzling the rest of the room.

Laurent Bathroom, 2017-08-26 03:48:16. Use the same tiles on the floor and walls, a clever trick to making a small bathroom look bigger is to use the same tiles on the walls and the floor. Not only does the natural stone in this family bathroom add a spa-style touch, but the continuous run of tiles creates a spacious feel, along with the wall-hung fixtures that save on floor area.
