1 Dou­ble height spa­ces al­low for dra­matic sce­ne­set­ting, and here the full glo­ries of the re­mark­able build are in ev­i­dence from top to bot­tom, stem to stern. Such space also al­low for dis­play of large art­works, even princely things like polo mal­lets and ta­pes­tries, while there’s al­ways open chan­nels of com­mu­ni­ca­tion, from on high, to down low

2 Go bold with brass. This pol­ished brass port­hole win­dow/mir­ror re­flects back into the mas­ter bed­room’s en suite, where there’s a wash stand sal­vaged from a Lon­don man­sion be­long­ing to the Sul­tan of Brunei

3 Any view will do. This thatched cot­tage has a gable end win­dow with views to the sea, and to an­other of pretty coastal ham­let Guileen’s old thatched homes

4 Di-splay your pos­ses­sions. Splayed, deep win­dowsills like this are per­fect for dis­play­ing prized arte­facts

5 Nat­u­ral build ma­te­ri­als like quarry tiles, qual­ity tim­bers and some ex­posed stone sec­tions seem to hap­pily go to­gether. Can we say that ‘co­a­lesce is more?’

6 If you’ve got it, flaunt it. When you’ve had the best of crafts­man­ship, leave its bones ex­posed. How can you not ad­mire the roof­ing work here, thatch out­side, and car­pen­try within
