Love this living room

  • A squishy, low-back sofa with gentle curves and a slouchy linen cover will set the tone for this laid-back look.
  • Be prepared for the chilly months ahead with warm, tactile textures such as raw linen, rustic woollens and soft felt.
  • Layer a range of gentle shades from the same neutral colour base to create a harmonious and tranquil scheme.
  • Choose furniture with metal legs and black, wrought-iron accessories to toughen up this romantic, dreamy palette.

 

Styling Tip

Go back to basics and fi ll shelves or an alcove with logs to create the ideal organic focal point for this casual, country scheme.

 

Good Idea

Juxtapose all the soft, worn textures with shiny accents of polished on-trend copper.

Man's best friend

Inject a sense of fun by mixing in a quirky animal cushion among the other sofa furnishings.

 

Decorating with neautral tones

Rose Petal - Pick a shade with a dusky, rather than pastel, undertone to keep this quiet colour grown-up and not too girly.

Muted Mocha - This versatile taupe is easy to live with. Use it alongside wood to emphasise its association with nature.

On-trend Updates

Seasonal motifs, such as stags and bare trees, help give instant autumnal appeal.

 

Natural Beauty

Transforming your living room into a cosy haven for winter doesn’t mean it can’t also be calm and elegant. Begin with a restrained palette of muted nude tones as this combination of soft hues creates a comfortable, relaxing environment. Add humble natural materials, woodland motifs and metallic hints in modern homes.
