Decorative over‐the‐mantel mirror. It's the oldest interiors trick in the book. A striking over‐the‐mantel mirror gives even a supersnug living room a sense of space and light. However don't settle for just any old mirror. For old‐school elegance go for a Shabby Chic–style French‐looking piece with an ornate white plaster or gilt wooden frame. If you can afford to get an original vintage mirror complete with authentically aged silvering. If not consider reproductions – they work a similar magic for less cash.

Mix pattern and softness. Furniture is a traditional way to add texture to a home. This gorgeous Ligne Roset sofa gives an instant sense of comfort and makes a great focal point with the fabric echoing the pattern of the brick wall in a softer way. You can't help but sit and get cozy.

Dot with jewel‐toned brights. This exquisitely put together living room is a stellar example of how a space with a very dark base can be vibrant. With the color palette focused on strong shades of green turquoise and mustard in light‐catching materials this dark space is an atmospheric haven.

Focus on accessories. If black walls are a step too far why not add some contrast with black accessories? 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.

Diner table and cool wallpaper. To get this quirky charming look tuck a classic diner‐style table up to a corner banquette backed with a wall covered in fresh modern wallpaper. The combination of a corner banquette (to maximize seating) and printed wallpaper (to add depth) is great for small spaces.
Rosetta Loreta Bathroom January 05th, 2017
Create a wet room. "The bathroom was completely reconfigured and shuffled around" says Emily Mackie of Inspired Interiors. "The room has 14‐foot ceilings and there’s a huge skylight overhead". She explains that "the idea was really to place the soaking tub in an environment under the skylight and have it share the area with the shower instead of dedicating space to each of them. It made more sense to allow the shower water to hit the tub and be part of an integrated area".

Moroccan pouf. It's that age‐old problem: where to prop your feet when you're relaxing on the sofa? The obvious solution is a Moroccan leather pouf. Simple and compact these versatile little seats work surprisingly well in a variety of settings not just souk‐style rooms. Here a pair of brown leather poufs adds impact next to a plain corner sofa complementing the sophisticated design scheme brilliantly.

Treat your feet. Luxurious underfoot artificial grass brings the joy of walking barefoot in the garden without the maintenance of a real lawn. It's perfect for creating a relaxing garden mood on a roof terrace or balcony where natural turf is impractical.
