Not everyone can bring in an architect when they’re remodelling their home, so Livingetc asked Mike Stiff, of leading UK architects Stiff + Trevillion, to give us five, easy-to-follow tips as to how to give a property a thoroughly modern edge.
1. Create a clear line of sight
2. Install semi-hidden light fittings
‘We tend to use concealed storage in the more classically minimal projects,’ says Mike. ‘The “industrial chic” look works well with open shelves and suspended features, while in more rural projects, we might use materials such as timber and wicker. Storage needs to sit well in the background rather than draw attention to itself. Space is at a premium more than ever, so looking at the Japanese style of living is a good starting point. Read Marie Kondo‘s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.’
4. Your choice of materials matters

The power of a white room is stunning—clean and crisp, the neutral palette adds a dose of instant chic to any home. With a never-ending array of undertones and finishes, finding the perfect white paint for your space can be a daunting task.
So what’s the perfect formulation for your molding? Your bathroom? How about your ceiling? We’ve asked designer Rozanne Jackson to break it down. Here, she discusses her favorite shades of ivory for every space:
1. Sherwin Williams – SW551: Greek Villa. This is my favorite soft white, it looks beautiful in any light. I have used this both at projects on the coast, and in the hills of Tennessee. It neither reads pink nor yellow, but stays true soft white.
2. Zolatone – the Counterpoint Collection. Several varying shades of white, all pearlized. An awesome set of paint options to glamorize cabinetry for bathroom vanities and closets. Subtle, but elegant.
3. Sherwin Williams – SW7637: Oyster White. Just like the name states, a perfect white with slight gray undertones. This is a wonderful more gray option for walls and trim, providing a sense of mystery without appearing too dark.
4. Farrow and Ball – Strong White #2001. Another great white for walls and millwork. I love the crispness that it adds to a space.
5. Farrow and Ball – Joa’s White #226. This is the color of antique French linen. It is a gorgeous warm white.
6. Fine Paints of Europe – WC-05. This paint is very luxurious and thick in texture, great for your front door! I love the high gloss finish – it is reminiscent of the stunning doors you encounter in Europe.
7. Sherwin Williams – SW6259: Spatial White. It has a soft lavender undertone. I use this color when I want to create a romantic mood.
8. Benjamin Moore – OC-130: Cloud White. This soft white is another great go-to for your walls and millwork. As the name suggests, it reminds me of a big fluffy cloud on a hot summer day.
Ceilings can look surprisingly beautiful, give a room the true grandeur it deserves with a tented ceiling. A fabric-draped ceiling creates a dramatic and romantic atmosphere. Elegant swags cascading outward from a central hub is an elegant design. This design can also be used effectively in a master bedroom with vaulted or high ceilings. Gentle rolling waves of fabric can be installed across a lower ceiling for a similar soft, billowy texture.
