Love this living room

  • Keep the look light and summery with an open-backed bookcase – it’s perfect for displaying ornaments in graphic shapes.
  • Pattern is a must in a saturated scheme – choose bold floral prints, leaves and sunburst motifs to add interest.
  • Use pale grey flooring as a cool backdrop to this bright and breezy scheme.
  • When it comes to choosing a shade of yellow, pale lemon varieties are easier to work with than rich, buttery tones.

Good Idea

Yellow’s vibrant and eye-catching, innate cheerfulness makes it a great choice for energising living spaces and family rooms.

 

Styling tips

This vivid colour works well with white or neutral furniture, so add a splash with zesty throws and zingy cushions for a spring-like feel.

Push together modular storage boxes with doors and castors for a versatile, moveable bedside table.

Natural Selection

Pick leaf prints for cushions – hand-drawn or outline designs are a big trend this season.

 

Perfectly Practical

Creat a dualpurpose room with a fold-down sofa bed for your overnight guests.
