A bold panel of sunshine fabric has been framed and hung to look as good as a painting. Style with a mix of rattan and wood to keep things informal.

Sunflower yellow curtains adda shot of summer warmth to distressed brick walls and a wallpaper crowded with porcelain plates.

Shots of textured wicker throw things nicely off kilter.

Put Picasso in mind to work a cupboard lined in colourful cubist-style fabric alongside vallauris-inspired ceramics.

Fill a dining space with lavender and mimosa to indulge all the senses. introduce contemporary furniture to family favourites and see how well they get along.

Work a palette of sun-drenched blues and timeless toile de Jouy with layers of slubby linen and heavily patterned quilts for a country farmhouse look.

Shake things up with a contemporary dressing table.

Blend the weathered textures of vintage stools and a classic table with linen and lace to create a relaxed, rustic moment.

For a masterclass in pure simplicity, set the clean lines of a classic basin alongside an unfinished wall.
