For an opulent take on a classic scheme, introduce shimmering textures, intricate prints and contemporary finishing touches.

Love this living room

  • For a grown-up look, add colour in small doses. Splashes of teal work brilliantly against a pared-down backdrop of silvery greys and bright whites.
  • Don’t be deterred from trying wallpaper with a bold print: choose this first and build your scheme around it so everything has the same look and feel.
  • Combining patterns is easy when you stick to the same colour palette. Stripes, waves and prints work seamlessly together.
  • A classic sofa shape can be given an instant update with the clean lines of a mirrored coffee table.

 

Good Idea

In a dark room, it’s vital to add brightness. Mirrors, light-coloured fabrics, iridescent materials and reflective glass will all help to illuminate a space.

Styling Tips

Make your mantelpiece stand out by placing a coloured glass vase filled with white roses centrestage, with silver dishes and ornate jars on either side.

Grouping together prints and pictures creates a striking focal point. To ensure a cohesive look, opt for all black and white artwork and house each piece in a matching frame.

 

Smart silver & deep teal

Bring in this vivid shade of blue to warm an icy palette.

All in the details

Mix tactile velvet and buttoned cushions to add interest to a plain living room sofa.

 

Easy Update

Transform inexpensive frames with patterned wallpaper – use the existing mount as a template to cut it to size.
