Free-form bursts of vibrant colour create an energetic, modernist vibe in this modern living room. This painterly design is actually a wallpaper mural, but – if you’re feeling brave – you could create your own. The artistic theme continues on to cushions and footstools and their impact is heightened by the backdrop of a plain, unpatterned sofa and stripped flooring.

The not-so-subtle glow of neon signs lights up the darker reccesses of the kitchen. They add warmth and interest to a plain space and were commissioned from a fairground signmaker. Stainless steel kitchen appliances give the kitchen an industrial vibe.
This modern dining room features a pared-down colour scheme of off-white and warm wood tones, using natural wood textures and a gallery of artwork for visual effect. This casual array of framed prints, arranged in an artlessly random way, is a cool statement in this neutral scheme.

In this elegant bathroom, the marble has been book matched – a process that splits the marble down the centre to produce two identical grains in mirror image. Properly sealed, marble is easy to care for, will age beautifully and will stand up to heavy traffic.
If space is at a premium, make the most of every available inch. Conceal office space within floor-to-ceiling storage to ensure you can shut away work cares at the end of the day. Covering cupboard doors in a bold patterned wallpaper adds an extra designerly touch to the scheme.
Re-create a dado effect in paint – taken around the room for extra impact. A brass stool and pendant help break up the scheme, while a subtly patterned geometric rug grounds the look. Hallways are a good place to experiment with wall colour since the rest of the scheme tends to be minimal.
