Featuring Hand-patinated brass tiles from the Alchemy collection from De Ferranti (020 7384 4424; www.deferranti.com).

Finishing touches - Decorative or inlaid floors give rooms an instant lift. Check out luxe finishes at De Ferranti, a new company set up by stone and ceramics expert Alvaro Ziani.

He suggests incorporating mother-of-pearl highlights or borders set within limestone or marble floors (from an eyewatering £2,115 a square metre).

Other highly decorative choices are Cosmati Work, a 12th century design where geometric patterns are made from tiles inlayed with coloured stones, mosaic, glass and gilding (available to special order), and brass briquette floor tiles from the Alchemy collection, which will create gleaming patterns in bronze, silvery or coppery finishes (from £376 a square metre).
