Soften a splashbackThe kitchen splashback is a classic place to use colour – it’s a relatively small space, and there’s a wide variety of materials and shades available. But a bright splashback does require some softening, and grey cabinets above and below the turquoise splashback in this room ensure it’s bright without being overwhelming.

Cork Here is a material that not only doesn’t harm the environment, it actively helps it. Removing the bark from cork oak trees means they live longer. ‘Cork is warm and it has a bounce to it, so it’s comfortable and it absorbs sound,’ says Gurjeet Hunjan. And gone are the days when tan was your only option. ‘Traditional, exposed cork is still available, but there are now many designs coated with vinyl, which gives you more choice of finishes,’ adds Gurjeet.Pros Cork is naturally antibacterial, so resistant to mould and mildew, non-slip, fire-retardant and insulating (as it’s filled with lots of tiny air pockets). It’s easy to clean with a damp mop, and exposed cork can be sanded and resealed to revive it. Cons Heavy furniture can leave an imprint, it can fade in strong sunlight and it’s easily scratched. It can handle spills as long as they’re mopped up, but if liquid is left on the floor it will damage it. Still unsure? Browse through photos of kitchens with cork flooring for more ideas.

A print by official Secret Garden Party photographer Nick Caro was key when it came to developing the colour scheme for the flat. ‘The owners regularly attend the festival, so this photograph is very personal to them,’ explains Gurjeet. ‘We had it blown up and transformed into a mural, and we’ve introduced colours picked out from it elsewhere in the scheme to enhance the sense of flow.’Print, Nick Caro Photography.How to create a feature wall that stands out from the crowd
