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.

They also continue into the kitchen. Note the small branch side table in the living room, which plays off the whimsical forest look in the dining room.

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.

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.

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.

Sort of like the trend in bridesmaids' dresses to have the ladies pick their own dresses as long as they are in the same hue, mixing and matching chair shapes is easy when you match the color. It does help to choose chairs in the same general style (modern, traditional) to keep them feeling like a set.

A gorgeous statement‐making chandelier, like the hot‐pink one shown here, plus tall vases of flowering branches, creates a subtle separation between spaces – perfect for an open‐plan home.
