First things first, you need to invest in a little (or a lot!) of blue to get your Turkish look off the ground. This lavish royal blue headboard acts as a centre feature and comforting backdrop to a fairytale bed of sea-like layers of teal and pastel blues. The dreamy mix of shades adds even more depth to this spacious bedroom.

2. Experiment with shapes

Interesting shapes are sure to catch your guests' Turkish eyes, so don't be afraid to invest in out-there products. Small touches like this structural vase add character to practical spaces, making every inch of your home a style haven. And best of all - there's no need for pricey bouquets!

3. Relax in low-level luxury
