White subway tile is ever popular, but a style that has been gaining in popularity in recent years is to pair white subway tile with dark gray grout in a running‐brick pattern. The resulting look defines the outlines of each tile, adding depth and interest to a space. The wider set the tiles are, the more pronounced the outline effect becomes and the bolder the look.

The end chairs don't need to be upholstered to be different – a pair in a style that's different from the rest is all you need to mix things up. Here, café chairs are on the long sides of the table and beautiful cane‐back side chairs are at the ends.

While many dressing tables are fussy, frilly or just too girly for my taste, here I've gathered some of my favorite modern‐looking dressing tables to share with you. Whether you're planning to set up a dressing table in your bedroom, in the bathroom or nearby, these ideas will surely inspire your space. If you're on the lookout for a dressing table and crave sleek lines, the deco design of the table shown here, with its wood finish and simple design, speaks to those of us with a modern taste. This dressing table in a room adjacent to the bedroom is glamorous without being fussy. If you're considering using a similar setup for your dressing area, painting the two spaces the same color will unify the rooms. If you crave color, consider purchasing an older dressing table and painting it to fit your needs. If a matching chair isn't included in the deal, buy one that fits well with the table and paint it to match. The gorgeous natural light in this bathroom makes it the perfect space for a small dressing table. Medicine cabinet–style mirrors above the dressing table provide storage and give this dressing table a built‐in look. A dressing table chair is the perfect place for a nice, bright splash of color. If your prefer to keep things monochromatic, upholstering the dressing table chair in the same shade as the wall will make a simple statement.

Here, an electric paisley pattern repeated on three beds and window treatments enlivens the room. Use remnants for a unique patchwork design. Creative decorator Cherie Marcel didn't let her fabric samples go to waste; instead, she used them to fashion a fabulous headboard. Allow the patterned headboard to be the star of the bedscape. Keep the duvet and shams solid and with minimal detailing, like this hotel‐style bedding, and use a minimal amount of coordinating throw pillows. Coordinate with a bed skirt or a bed platform to create continuity. Pay attention to the way the pattern relates to the headboard's shape. Here the vertical stripes emphasize the point at the top of the headboard. Note the way the stripes on the bed skirt and the headboard align. If you don't have a headboard, create the illusion of one by hanging a quilt on the wall above the bed. It can cozy up a room and create interesting proportions with dramatic height.

Keep color to a minimum, focusing on white, cream and natural wood tones. A tree stump stool by the tub fits perfectly with this look; pick up a ready‐made version or try crafting one yourself. If you choose metallic accents (for drawer pulls, etc.), keep them in the warm family; brass or copper would be good choices. Hang a classic hotel‐style robe on a wall hook. Choose an unusual bath mat – bamboo, cork or river stone. Wool and sheepskin hold up surprisingly well in damp conditions, but it's best to keep them away from direct contact with drippy toes. On the other side of the room by the sink would be a better choice. Natural linen shades filter light beautifully and add a textural note.

A secondhand wood table with a farmhouse or industrial heritage has already passed the test of time. Any scratches and nicks in the tabletop surface have mellowed into design details, becoming features to admire. If you accidentally add a few more to it, it won't matter. For this reason, these tables are great for families with children – you never have to worry about whether your brood is unwittingly or even intentionally marking the table. The damage, if minor, will only become part of the beauty of the piece. That said, it's worth protecting your table with a hard wax polish, which should be applied about twice a year.

"This is a steam shower, which is why the ceiling is sloped and tiled, the glass goes all the way up to the ceiling and there's a hinged panel that can be cranked open", says Ines Hanl. "The shower has white Thassos marble on the walls and a black marble mosaic on the floor, both of which are inspired by the color scheme in the rest of the bathroom– black and white marble mosaic for the floor and black‐stained cherry cabinetry". Contrast modern and rustic. "This bathroom was part of a renovation in what was originally an old stone gatehouse", says Kelly Solon of Murdock Solon Architects. "We were trying to insert a clean, modern design into a very rustic and visually heavy environment. The frameless enclosure provide a light and airy feel, as well as a contrast to the other materials in the space".
