City townhouse...

Do you drool over Georgian townhouses with cascading steps and black wrought iron gates? Postcode pushers are more inclined to buy a smart city home with an upscale zip code rather than a rustic pad with stables.

...or country thatch?

That thatch! Country mice would far rather be close to the coolest rambling path for lazy Sunday walks than desirable shopping streets and the new ‘it' eateries. Plus, that grand gravel driveway won't leave you shunting between permit parking bays.

Small city hallway...

Galley entrance halls don't bother you as long as they are kept classy and elegant. Coated in icy shades of grey or mod mauve, you would be more than happy to receive your city fashion pack through this hall.

...or grand country reception room?

Do you dream of grand entrances with period features to rival Downton? This hall, with its period features and arched ceiling, has plenty of room for muddy children, wet dogs and wellington boot.

Subterranean city kitchen...

If you want to jump on the basement conversion hype and reap the rewards of a huge, subterranean kitchen then city living is for you. Chic, shiny metal furnishings are your thing and you get all your interior inspo from the coolest restaurant haunts.

...or cute country kitchen?

Countrymen look for lofty eaves and natural light for their kitchen emporiums. Cabinets must be finished in muted shades of duck egg or cornflower blue beneath exposed beams and naturally, an AGA.

Sexy city living room...

Small living rooms don't bother you as you're too much of a social butterfly to spend much time at home. As long as there are grand, Georgian-style windows to spy on the street, bespoke furnishings and contemporary furniture, you're happy.

...or large country living room?

A generous, rolling living space will take your fancy if you're a country owl. Winter evenings sat huddled around the crackling fire with all the familyis your idea of heaven.

Boutique city bedroom...

You lust after a boutique hotel inspired bedroom: clean lines, statement headboard and brass punctuations. What they lack in square footage they make up for in a stunning sunrise across your favourite city every morning.

...or cosy country bedroom?

Exposed brickwork, shabby chic bed linen and a patchwork quilt are all essential staples in your ideal bedroom.

City wet room...

Who has time for a bath? Who has space for a bath? City dwellers love a wet room finished in calacatta marble, statement tiles and cunning storage systems that allow you to make the most of your limited space.

...or country bathing room?

Take time to sit back and relax in a traditional tub up in the eaves. If you lust after honey-glazed oak everything, a stand-alone bath and some peace and quiet, then the city is not for you.
