2 Zara’s Cabinet de Curiosités

3 Patchwork Tiling
Mix and match vintage-inspired ceramics to create a distinctive feature floor, wall or kitchen splashback.

4 The Natural Touch
Spanish style incorporates a lot of natural materials, so stick to a natural colour palette and throw in some subtle prints, a splash of colour and metallic finishes for that modern touch. Make stone floors cosier with a rug and don’t forget that statement plant to bring the outdoors in. Grey sofa, from £1,299; striped Ziggy chair, £199; red Zuse chair, £149; marble-effect coffee table, £99; Indiana pendant light, £29. All from
