Opt for polished floors that reflect light and make a space seem larger.
Mad Men actor and interior designer Bryan Batt featured this gorgeous living room in his recent design book Big, Easy Style. If you're lucky enough to have large windows and soaring ceilings, consider choosing a fun wall colour that can stand on its own in a bright room. (2012 is seeing shades of tangerine everywhere!) This room features a custom wall colour inspired by Hermès.
