    Presided over by a show-stopping cast-bronze cow’s head by Tessa Campbell Fraser, this double-height space personifies urban country style. The muted colour scheme is livened up with hits of orange and lush greenery, light bounces off the polished boards and white adds to the feeling of airiness. The vintage pieces, meanwhile, also help make this room special – how amazing is that cascading Italian chandelier and who wouldn’t want to pull up a chair at the supersized dining table or park themselves on one of those comfy reupholstered armchairs?

    Sometimes we all feel an angel on our shoulder, whispering to us about the finer things in life. It could be about being a better neighbour (yes, that party the other week was very loud) or trying not to get too het up when the software you’ve installed refuses to work. Or maybe it’s advising you how best to decorate a new space in the house – whether the blue walls in this bathroom, for example, work well with the polished-travertine floor and vintage landscape.
