    Squashed between suits on the Northern line and your mind drifts to the bar that’s been closed all week. You recall its brass tiles and low lighting, the gleaming bottles on delicate shelves, and suddenly you’re there. Shoes off, phone off, and you’re home. You slide open your favourite room, pour yourself a drink and, finally, your beloved bar is once again open for business.

    As much as we feign a love for the sun, on a boiling hot day the only place we want to be is in a bright, cool room with a tall, cold drink. Bold geometrics and striking abstract artwork bring the outside heat into this summer-ready room. The distinct colour palette scorches against the pristine backdrop and dark wood floor. Tropical colours without the tropical heat – we can’t think of anywhere better to lap up the light and bypass the burn.

    After a long hot day (or night), nothing beats a refreshing shower or bath. Isn’t this elegant, pared-back sanctuary exactly the kind of place you’d want to retreat to? The cool grey walls and marble partition would soothe any hot and bothered soul. While the herringbone wood floor and vintage-style mirror, lighting and chrome fittings make the space seem timeless. When we’re feeling the heat, a no-hurry, no-hassle luxe vibe is just what we want.

    We all know that the raw, bare-brick look conjures up a sense of gritty urban style, but why not layer on texture to inject an element of craft into the scheme? Here, the on-trend ink-blot textiles, thick, matted rubber that makes the unusual basket displayed in the cabinet and the dense, tactile material covering the ottoman create a luxurious setting, all grounded by that deep, deep blue used to paint the woodwork. The wall may be bare, but everything else is dressed to the max…
