Need inspiration for your next statement wall art? We have noticed a recent trend towards close-up shots featuring cows and horses. A black and white version can give a moody, artsy feel (without invoking a country homestead!) Pic: Jenni Radosevich

You've probably heard that what's on the inside is more important than the outside, but when it comes to houses, first impressions matter! Steal this classic Palm Springs trick of painting the front door a solid, bold colour to instantly lift an otherwise plain facade. Photo: Matt Crump

A room can have the most luxurious furniture in the world - but without the smaller finishing touches it is likely to have a cold, empty atmosphere. Don't forget details such as wall art, cushions, and personal items to give a warmer, lived-in feel.

Need to make a bold statement but don't have room for a sculpture? An armchair can make the same visual impact while also offering a practical purpose. Pic: ELTE

This bathroom, in the home of actress Naomi Watts, proves that chandeliers are not just for living or dining areas. Together with other well-chosen gold accents, this light fixture brings a touch of decadence to an otherwise minimal black and white bathroom. Pic: Architectural Digest

Across multiple studies and surveys, blue has always been the most popular colour. But what makes us favour blue? It reminds us most strongly of the ocean or a clear sky, and has hardly any negative associations. Blue can be a great safe choice when you need an interior to appeal to a wide range of people, but using a bolder shade can still make a statement!

Styling a bedside table? Start by finding the perfect lamp then add in objects like an alarm clock, jewellery tray, artwork, framed photo or candle. Books can be stacked under other objects to add height and visual interest. Avoid overcrowding with too many knick-knacks though, as a cluttered bedroom can exacerbate stress! Pic: Carly Waters Style

Lighting has sometimes been referred to as "the jewellery of the home". Like a great pair of earrings instantly improves an outfit, a statement light fixture is the perfect place to add a touch of flair that elevates the entire space. Some key locations for your "jewellery" include entry and hallways, over dining or meeting tables, above kitchen islands, and bedroom lamps. Photo: Hannah Blackmore

To be a great designer you must always feed your mind with inspiration, so that you don't end up repeating the same ideas. Instead of scrolling through Pinterest, try using books and magazines, so that you don't get distracted and can truly absorb what you're looking at. It's good for your brain!

You might have heard of a statement bathtub, but what about a statement sink? Adding an oversized double sink like this one can be the perfect addition to an ensuite bathroom (if size permits), allowing a couple to share sink space at the same time. Just make sure you add in a wide enough mirror! Pic: Stoffer Photography Interiors
