Love this living room

  • When it comes to colour, begin with a grown-up grey tone and introduce the palest of pastels.
  • This look is all about co-ordination: use the same footstool fabric to make simple envelope cushions, and match paint shades to the sofa and carpet.
  • Make the sofa the room’s focal point – choose an appealing, oversized, marshmallow-soft design.
  • Hardworking furniture designs are key: a lift-up footstool can double as a coffee table with added storage.

 

Styling Tips

Achieve this clean and contemporary scheme by keeping pattern to a minimum – stick to clean lines and unfussy, geometric prints.

Choose structured blooms, such as poppies, clematis and stocks, in pastel peach and lavender to lift a soft-grey scheme.

Good Idea

Layer soft felts, chunky knits, chalky-matt paint and washed linens to add inviting textural interest.

 

Candy floss & dove grey

Keep things nice and simple with this easy-going colour combination.

Finishing Touch

A statement chair in a geometric fabric will ensure this tonal scheme has plenty of modern interest.

 

Oriental Influence

Origami-inspired accessories add delicate, on-trend detail to surfaces.
