1. DARK KITCHEN

Marble wraps around this modern kitchen island, complementing the marble inset shelving area and adding some luxe to this understated scheme. Notice the Scandi style minimalist side table and flush kitchen storage – but it’s the pops of yellow which really energise the space and give it a sharp, modern look.Photography by Marc Van Praag

3. BOUTIQUE BATHROOM

A cement basin and marble walls give this en-suite bathroom a stylish boutique hotel feel. Encaustic-inspired tiles using the same colour palette adds interest while keeping the look cohesive. Proof that concrete in the bathroom can still look luxe.

5. LIGHT AND AIRY

This light and airy living room oozes relaxed summer living. It's a fuss-free scheme with an industrial-style exposed lightbulb pendant, minimal furniture, a muted palette and natural materials. The owner left a deliberately uncluttered feel to the space, allowing the original architectural features – like the classic Swedish fireplace – to speak for themselves.
