Playfulness

The interior's sense of playfulness is emphasised by the sitting room's orange car rug. For a similar injection of fun, check out William Yeoward's wall hanging. Price on request, The Rug Company, DIFC, Dubai

Quirkiness

A contemporary perspex chandelier says quirky glamour. For a similar version, try Singways in The Walk, Jumeirah Beach Residence, or take an image of what you want to DragonMart, where they can copy any design in any colour

Classics

Robin Day's 1972 classic Polo chair has become part of design consciousness. Price on request, www.humanspace.com, 04 3574 393. See more of Day's work at loft.co

Formality

The rather traditional-looking insignia cushions lend a grown-up glamour to the eye-catching blue sofa. Try this equally regal version from Autentico Living. Dh350

Models
