Feel virtuous when lathering up with a WaterSense‐certified shower head. WaterSense understands that no one wants a wimpy shower spray, so all their approved fixtures tout a "satisfactory shower that is equal to or better than conventional showerheads on the market" while using just 2 gallons of water per minute.

Putting a low bench on one side of the dining table in place of chairs is an easy way to break up a set, typically costs less than buying individual chairs and is great for small spaces. Try an upholstered bench for comfort during leisurely meals or a wooden bench for a sleeker look.

Restaurant‐style swinging doors with circular glass insets bring energy to the kitchen here, while a chandelier made up of globe lights in different hues echoes the shape of the round panes in the door.

Starr says her clients wanted the area off the kitchen to be used as an activity nook for playing board games with friends; she added a touch of grown‐up glamour with impressive geometric pendants and a custom banquette upholstered in a playful fabric.

Luxurious underfoot, artificial grass brings the joy of walking barefoot in the garden without the maintenance of a real lawn. It's perfect for creating a relaxing garden mood on a roof terrace or balcony, where natural turf is impractical.

This built‐in banquette needs little more than a small table and a couple of light‐colored chairs to complete a fine‐looking and functional kitchen nook. The window bench extends from the end of the kitchen cabinets to create an ideal space between two big windows. The banquette can also double as storage with a hinged lid seat covered by cushions.

Craft a worldly look with a mosaic of mismatched tiles like the Cuban tile shown here, printed cushions and a hammered silver or copper pendant light. Benches are extra cozy, but a tiled accent wall alone could add oomph to any breakfast nook.

Use fancy little trays to collect and curate your bath items; place a few bath oils and soaps on one, a cluster of votive candles on another. Potted plants are a wonderful way to add mystery and depth. Try ferns, orchids or a palm. Mood lighting is key for the spa escape look, so look beyond the standard choices for interesting light fixtures. I adore Moroccan hanging lanterns; hung alone or in a cluster, they add a big punch of style and cast an amazing glow. Cultivate the feel of a five‐star European hotel with rich materials, glossy finishes and a tightly edited black and white palette. Search vintage shops for a small glass‐front cabinet to use for towel storage. Paint it in the glossiest, darkest black you can find, then fill it with fluffy white towels.
