Sleek, smooth mod plastic chairs create a dynamic counterpoint to an intricate, whimsical pendant light here. Sticking with white for the chairs and light fixture keeps this kitchen (with its pink cabinets) from veering into too‐sweet territory.

It could be a spectacular view from the tub, a spalike ambience, classic English country fixtures, or rich colors and exotic, hand‐painted tiles. Of course for many of us, a complete bathroom overhaul isn't in the cards. No matter what look is calling your name, there are ways to translate the key elements of the style you love into your bathroom without the high price of remodeling. Let's explore some accessible ideas in five dream bathrooms. Even without the massive square footage or fancy designer, you can pull together a gorgeous room with classic, crisp decorator touches that are well within reach. Swap out standard blinds for fabric shades and your bath will suddenly feel like a real room. Upgrade your towels for a fluffy version with contrasting piping or grosgrain trim.

A rod (versus chain) installation creates a crisp and somewhat masculine aesthetic that works very well with these drum shades. This eclectic bedroom stretches the limits of minimalism by blending the pendants into the wall. The result is pure function, as the aesthetic is more about what is not there. Now this is what I meant by "secret weapon." This otherwise simple bedroom is kicked into high gear with these fabulous pendants. When design goes outside the box, magic happens. A guest bedroom is a great place in which to sport a bedside pendant that is unique and memorable. These great pendants look like fancy dinner napkins. The result is a whimsical, one‐of‐a‐kind environment for a lucky houseguest.

Between the porthole window (nicely echoed by the round mirror) and the starfish accents, this space could only be coastal. This proves you don't have to pile on nautical accents to lend a breezy, beachy feel. With mirrored sparkle, suave lighting and overtones of glamour, this bath radiates Hollywood Regency chic. Stripped back to the bare essentials, this bath typifies minimalist decor. Where do you think they keep the toiletries? Warm white tones, soft light and a sweetly skirted vanity seat? Feels romantic to me. All it needs is a vase of fresh flowers and a candle or two.

Generally, the country‐style dining table is large and therefore suitable for families or for people who regularly entertain. These tables are usually made from a solid timber, like oak or pine, making them very robust. They also have an uncomplicated design suitable for most schemes, although, pleasingly, many country tables feature elegantly turned legs that support the tabletop. The only real consideration in buying this style of table is whether to go for an upmarket one, such as a French colonial table, or one with the rustic appeal of an English country farmhouse. Whatever you choose to suit your home, you can be assured that both will look drop‐dead gorgeous when they are set and dressed for a country farmhouse feast.

If you love hunting for vintage chairs, a great way to build a set is by keeping an eye out for chairs made of the same material, or in a distinctive shape – cane‐backed, ladder‐back, wood, metal, wicker and so on. Once you have your set, you can determine whether or not you also want to unify them with paint (see No. 2).

It's a pretty bold choice for a kitchen, but when you hear architect Mark English talk about this room's color palette, it makes perfect sense: "The home is sited on a hill with a 270‐degree, long‐distance view toward the east and northeast. The color of the light coming into the house tends toward gray and bluish tones, so the orange was used to counteract the coolness of those tones. The island and upper cabinets are 'pieces' that can be seen from adjacent rooms, and I wanted to highlight them. The regular base cabinets and full‐height cabinets are meant to be background elements".

The tufted texture of these ottomans turns them into statement pieces that pull this design together. The combination of the soft ottomans, leather chair and luxurious rug brings a sense of depth and comfort to this elegant scheme.
