These ribbed porcelain tiles serve the bathroom in a physical, practical and visual way. They simultaneously stimulate the feet, provide a practical nonslip surface and add visual depth. Light bounces off the irregular, diamond‐cut ridges for a playful, elegant effect.

Similar to a rectangular dining table, the oval dining table is elongated to work in a narrow room but visually seems to occupy less space because of its rounded corners. Oval tables also have the benefits of a round table in that they provide a cozy and intimate setting but can usually seat more people.

This kitchen has big Western cabin bones – a stone fireplace, wood cabinets, large exposed trusses. But the restrained details add modern flair. The graphic rug is a fresh interpretation of Navajo style; the oversized pendant in glossy black adds a big, modern touch.

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.

Look beyond the simple monochromatic palette and you'll see a range of textures at work. Contrast the matte black wall with the rough surface of the white painted bricks, and the soft, inviting bed throw with the rough, natural‐fiber rug. Even the ceiling and artwork are textured. This is an all‐over tactile and visual feast.

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.

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.

That luxury takes a lot of water – roughly 50 to 70 gallons per bath. Being water wise doesn't have to mean giving up your long soak. When remodeling or building, look for smaller tubs with a capacity of less than 60 gallons. Also, when you're just looking for a quick clean, you'd be more water smart to jump in the shower, where you'll use about half the water.
