Plaster-effect wallpaper painted in a pale shade of pink makes a fitting backdrop for furniture and art.

Cast a diffused, heavenly light on angelic objects through sequin-embellished curtains.

Add new perspectives with a vast trompe l’oeil motif – a picture frame has never looked quite so epic.

Give textured neutral fabrics an added twist with generously proportioned pleats.

Reverse the natural order by setting off-white bouclé upholstery against a sheer black wall.

Inject a dash of contemporary style into a trad-shaped chair with subtle geometric textiles.

Neutral-hued wallpaper embossed with waves of painterly marks creates a restful, free-flowing feel.

Shimmering ferns and extravagant fringes lend bedroom accessories a glamorous edge.

A divine mix of wrought-iron, scrolled-wood and rattan pieces blends beautifully in a neutral scheme.

Show off sculptural designs to fab effect with a modern-day basket-weave print. It’s simply grand…
