Combine elegant teal with graphic patterns and bold, primary shades to create a vibrant scheme.

Love this living room

  • Pick a sofa in a strong hue and shape – it will take centre stage and anchor an eclectic mix of patterns and objects.
  • Go all-out with prints for maximum impact. Triangles, hexagons, squares, chevrons, stripes and structured, 2D-tiled designs combine together well.
  • Choose a bookcase with a striking polygon form: it will add unexpected interest as well as provide useful storage.
  • Punctuate your eye-catching items with solid blocks of colour, as they will ground the whole scheme and keep it from feeling too busy and confused.

 

Good Idea

Repeated patterns have visual weight, making them perfect for flooring or a rug.

 

Styling Tip

Use a fresh new, retro-print fabric to reupholster a footstool and place it in the centre of the room to pull the look together.

Decorating with punchy colours

Tempting Teal - Powerful and edgy, a burst of this on-trend hue makes a modern statement. All blue shades are cool and relaxing.

Firecracker Red - This stimulating shade is perfect for energising family spaces. Used in moderation, as an accent colour, it will add warmth to a room.

 

Modern geometrics

Begin with a bold shade of rich teal and then accent the scheme with contrasting elements in warm hues. Punctuate the palette with a selection of graphic shapes and prints. Mix and match as much as you like, but ensure the colours and patterns are all as strong as each other to create a sense of balance.

Chic display

Add a shelf along one wall as an alternative to a picture rail. It also doubles as an extra space for styling objects.

 

Keep it fresh

Rotating items and accessories every couple of weeks will give you a brand new look with plenty of interest.
