Choose a pale wood for kitchen units to create a light and bright space. Rectangular steel door handles create a contemporary look and complement the sleek marble worktop. Try mixing and matching pastel tiles on a splashback to add a dash of subtle colour to the scheme.

White walls give the landing an open feel. A Shaker-style peg rail with a hanging cupboard provides useful storage without encroaching on the floor space.

This zesty leaf-print bedlinen adds a fresh summery feel and bounces light into an attic bedroom. A traditional oak chest of drawers doubles up as a bedside table and provides handy storage. Finish the look by hanging cute decorative accessories.

Add a splash of colour to a light and airy room with a floral bedspread and bold cerise lamps. A brass bed with a curved head brings a touch of country style and provides an old-fashioned focal point to the room.
