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.

A sloped ceiling helps to occupy some of the visual space that a tall headboard and piles of pillows would. Buttress it with furniture. This bed backs up to an integrated shelf and bench unit that makes the long, narrow space seem snug. Orienting the bed against a wall also enhances the enveloping feel. Keep the scale large. In a tiny room, even a double or queen‐size bed will feel massive, and oversize scale translates to a feeling of comfort and warmth. You'll need enough room to walk on either side, so don't squeeze it in too tightly. Stay low to the ground. A mattress that sits on the floor feels just right for curling up and lounging. Frame it with a four‐poster. Without canopies, testers or other draped fabric treatments, four‐poster beds can feel wonderfully spare. This one provides a visual framework that helps to create a cozy sense of boundaries. Warm it with color. Vivid tomato red keeps this floating bed from feeling sterile. Layer in texture. Nubby, tactile linens and surfaces help to prevent a minimalist bed from feeling flat and one‐dimensional. Combine three or four textural yet comfortable elements, such as the woven rug, wooden planking and feathery plant in this space. Keep the color scheme basic to preserve the stripped‐down sensibility.

For those who prefer light neutral walls but are on the hunt for an alternative to white, beige or gray, think about going with a pale green or soft yellow as your main neutral. If the hue has a bit of gray or brown, it will work as a neutral. Then add a small hit of bold yellow to really spice up the space.

"This kitchen was designed to bring a symmetrical balance to the back, windowed wall", says Marlene Wangenheim of Interiors By Design. "All the materials, though rich, were very played down– for example, the white quartz stone countertops and the Calacatta marble brick tile with mother‐of‐pearl in the backsplash". "The chandelier brings your eye immediately to the center of the room, and then the tour begins", she adds. "The glitz of the chandelier also balances the serene color palette by contrasting it and giving it a wow effect".

And with that come nursery inquires from friends. No matter what anyone's style, age or lifestyle is, I recommend Jenny Lind–style cribs and beds. Their whimsical spool detailing can easily work in a traditional, transitional or eclectic home. A white Jenny Lind crib pops against the nursery's purple flat‐panel wainscoting. Pink paisley pairs with white Jenny Lind single beds to create the bedroom of every little girl's dreams. Thanks to its simple design, Jenny Lind furniture is easy to pair with vibrant patterns. The white crib, chain‐link rug and whimsical Roman shade fabric in this nursery prove just that. A pair of Jenny Lind single beds contributes to the vintage feel of this sporty bedroom. With customized bunting, a white Jenny Lind crib, a pouf and a butterfly mobile, Parker's nursery is bursting with personality. The functional Jenny Lind trundle acts as an extra bed for sleepovers. Featuring Delta's Jenny Lind crib, this nursery is brimming with charm. Stark white bedding makes a contrasting statement as it dresses a classic navy Jenny Lind crib.

In this L‐shaped arrangement, the wood grain of the built‐in banquette is matched to the kitchen countertops and complemented by a white table and cabinets. To add color and interest, it has been decorated with a variety of flea market finds.

Suspended over the table like a full moon, the paper lantern is on a grand scale, making this dining space so impressive. And while an authentic Noguchi paper lantern is stunning, there are paper lanterns available at all prices and in all sizes.

This boudoir has dark blinds, a thick black picture frame and an ebony vanity table, creating a darkly luxurious spot. The key here is the glossy surfaces, which catch the light rather than absorbing it.
