Members’ Club Living Room.

Get a laid-back, masculine look with dark grey walls and pinstripe and windowpane-check fabrics. Go for traditional- style furniture, but give the room an edge with modern lighting.

Create quintessentially British look by choosing traditional fabrics for upholstery, like the fine wool mix of the sofa. Atlas medium sofa in MYK Trinidad Grey,
£1,429; Manhattan large sofa in Warwick Saville Charcoal, £2,209 and Aston armchair in Warwick Bainbridge Grey, £1039, all Multiyork. For a similar floor lamp, try BHS.

Turn your living room into a smart but cosy den for relaxing and socialising in, with a sophisticated colour palette and trad styling. We love these clever wallpapers that create a textured brick look chimney breast, plus a vintage book sheld feature wall. Brick 226706 wallpaper, £10.99 per roll, Wow! Collection, Albany range, Wallpaperdirect. Vinatge Bookshelf wallpaper, £70 per 2.5m panel, Young & Battaglia range, Rockett St George.

City Loft Kitchen.

Use wallpaper to imitate exposed brickwork, lay raw-plank-effect flooring and keep units simple for a contemporary look. Black, factory-style lights and accessories give it definition.

Add an overhang onto island unit worktops to give you a bar to sit and enjoy informal meals or just to chat. These Metod Base cabinets start at £21 for a 600mm unit, the Veddinge kitchen doors and drawer fronts are from £10 for a 600mm door and the Karlby worktop in oak veneer, is from £80 fro L186mm all from Ikea.

Keep it simple with real or faux natural surfaces and a cool, grey-and-black palette to create a relaxed space for cooking, eating and gathering together. This nine-drawer apothecary chest, £699.99 from Worldstores, has blackboard front drawers to label each drawer accordingly. The Putney clock, £95 is from Newgate Clocks and the table lamp costs £34.95 from Lampandlight.co.uk.

Family Canteen Dining Room.

Turn your dining area into a hard-knocks, family proof space with retro metal and wood furniture. Feature lighting and bold, block-print blinds give the scheme instant character.

Set up a home office for paperwork or homework in an alcove, with a pocket wall tidy to tame family clutter. This metal pocket wall storage is from Rose and Grey and costs £125 and is the perfect way to keep the family’s admin in check.
The ‘This Way’ arrow green light-bulb sign is £145 from Alexander & Pearl and keeps the space fun.

Industrial-style furniture is practical for everyday dining, with green and cream-painted walls to bring out the patina of natural wood surfaces. Here we used Slipper Satin and Chappell Green Estate Emulsions, £36 for 2.5ltr, Farrow & Ball. The Rivet industrial metal sideboard is £795 from Alexander & Pearl and the black and white prints on the wall are from a selection at House of Ilford.

Urban Luxe Bedroom.

Create a contemporary look with a sophisticated scheme of neutrals, with added drama from a deep blue feature wall. Adding metal and glass pieces will give it a tougher, inner-city edge.

Use laminate flooring to build a display shelf behind your bed. In a tight space, it could also replace bedside tables. We used Hardwood Variano Painted White Oak oiled multi-strip flooring, £49.99 per sq m, Quick-Step. The bedside tables are £120 each from Rockett St George and the Paola pendant is £50 from BHS.

A mix of neutrals and blue is ideal for a calm, enveloping feel in a bedroom, with sleek metal details balanced by a pretty floral pattern on bed linen. Here the walls have been painted in Juniper Ash Absolute Matt Emulsion, £35 for 2.5ltr from Little Greene, with the Vintage Boast Race framed print, costing from £15.95 from The London Transport Museum.

Victorian Revival Bathroom.

Team traditional elements like a copper slipper bath and brick tiles with sleek, contemporary fittings for a look that suits both period and modern homes.

A false half-wall conceals pipework and gives you a ledge for propping mirrors and keeping bottles and jars on. The Fairweather window-pane style mirrors in grey, are from An Angel At My Table and cost £150 each, and the copper lid jars are also from here costing £6.50 each.
