Antique and modern accents pay tribute to tailoring. The globe is an 18th‐century sewing table and the framed piece above is a shirt made out of a folded map of London. Dittmar designed custom bedding and pillows to conjure the crisp look of ties and pocket squares. From show house to your house: If you're stuck in a decorating rut try playing with a theme in one of your bedrooms. It can be something bold – like a sports‐theme kid's room – or something more subtle like Dittmar's design. But by giving yourself a path to follow you'll have less trouble deciding on what pieces to use. The amazing art installation in this bathroom is by artist Michele Pred who uses airport‐confiscated scissors and knives in much of her work. The design team worked with Pred to create a specific installation for this space – a bathtub full of silver scissors snagged by the Transportation Security Administration.

Off‐kilter. These floating timber shelves work wonderfully with the color of the steel cladding on the fireplace surround. The varying length of the shelves adds character.

Keep a little‐stuff drawer. Notice I did not say "junk drawer". Every room has small items that need a home and a well‐organized drawer can be a smart place to put them. It's only a junk drawer if you think of it that way! Unless you are already using a storage ottoman as a junk drawer (see No. 3) find a drawer in a console table credenza or chest to hold small stuff such as charging cords pens stamps and scissors.

You might have selected your appliances earlier in the design phase in terms of manufacturer model number and size but remember that stainless isn't the only option. Some companies offer a vintage finish like this black with brass accents while others offer a wide array of enameled colors. Choices like this can determine the look and feel of your kitchen in one sweeping gesture. Other finish selections to be noted here are the full‐height marble backsplash the farmhouse sink fabric in the upper glass insert cabinets the heavy crown molding and the freestanding island.

Matching striped upholstery and solid pillows. Have your armchairs covered in identical striped fabric as the sofa and finish the look off with a cluster of solid‐hued pillows.

While many dressing tables are fussy frilly or just too girly for my taste here I've gathered some of my favorite modern‐looking dressing tables to share with you. Whether you're planning to set up a dressing table in your bedroom in the bathroom or nearby these ideas will surely inspire your space. If you're on the lookout for a dressing table and crave sleek lines the deco design of the table shown here with its wood finish and simple design speaks to those of us with a modern taste. This dressing table in a room adjacent to the bedroom is glamorous without being fussy. If you're considering using a similar setup for your dressing area painting the two spaces the same color will unify the rooms. If you crave color consider purchasing an older dressing table and painting it to fit your needs. If a matching chair isn't included in the deal buy one that fits well with the table and paint it to match. The gorgeous natural light in this bathroom makes it the perfect space for a small dressing table. Medicine cabinet–style mirrors above the dressing table provide storage and give this dressing table a built‐in look. A dressing table chair is the perfect place for a nice bright splash of color. If your prefer to keep things monochromatic upholstering the dressing table chair in the same shade as the wall will make a simple statement.

Give newspapers and magazines a temporary home. One neat basket of magazines or newspapers looks fine – a table strewn with them not so much. Dedicate one generously sized basket to house periodicals and commit to weeding out old issues when they no longer comfortably fit in the container.

Leather club armchair. Fancy the private members' club look? Then opt for a classic deep‐seated leather armchair like this one; the more battered the better. Buy secondhand for extra lived‐in character or source a vintage‐look piece about town (feather‐filled cushions offer an added slouch factor). Prettify it with a floral cushion then sit back and relax with a cuppa (or glass of port).
