GO COUN­TRY Take this re­laxed scheme in a more ru­ral di­rec­tion by re­plac­ing the African prints with large-scale, bright, flo­ral prints on cush­ions and cur­tains. Add a sturdy wooden bench at the din­ing ta­ble or opt for a wooden bed frame in a bed­room. MAKE IT IN­DUS­TRIAL

Mix in an area of ex­posed brick (or a brick-ef­fect wall­pa­per to fake the look), an over­sized barn light over the kitchen ta­ble and a cof­fee ta­ble on cas­tors to give this rus­tic look vin­tagechic el­e­ments. Just make sure you com­bine plenty of cush­ions and rugs in bright colours to act as a foil to the in­dus­trial neu­trals.

UP THE GLAM­OUR Add more jewel tones, such as turquoise blue, hot fuch­sia pink and deep emer­ald green, to your pal­ette for a more lux­u­ri­ous feel. Ac­ces­sorise with light­ing in brass and gold, adding a few touches of sparkle, such as Moroc­can-wed­ding­blan­ket-style throws.
