W9, London - by Studio 29 Architects

This family home was lovingly refurbished by the architect using high impact statement pieces alongside more modestly priced items - such as the canary yellow staircase, fitted over a raw concrete floor (see below).

Likewise, specifying a standard IKEA kitchen but customising with integrated lighting and high-end handles gives the impression of an entirely bespoke kitchen - but at a much lower cost.
