Create a cosy living room scheme with rustic touches

Relax into a cosy, autumnal scheme with natural textures, woodland motifs and warm burnt orange hues.

Love this living room

  • Transforming your chimney breast with wooden-plank-style wallpaper is an easy way to create a focal point and ensure that neutral walls don’t appear too flat.
  • Be bold and experiment with colour: choose textiles in a statement burnt sienna and contrast with accessories in a complementary sapphire blue.

 

Good Idea

Add texture to a plain linen sofa with a chunky-knit throw and brightly coloured cushions in decadent satin and velvet.

 

Styling Tips

Pick wall art and photo frames of diff erent heights and sizes and lean a selection against a wall, rather than hanging them up, for an informal mantelpiece display.

Utilise under-bench storage space with rattan and wooden boxes and suspend wire baskets from alphabet hooks for an inexpensive way to keep your hall tidy.

Pumpkin and natural linen

Bring warmth and texture to a neutral palette with touches of this rich shade.

 

Eclectic Mix

Display retro prints and vintage postcards with woodland ornaments for a diverse look.

Floral Fancy

Opt for vibrant orange blooms, pretty white roses and thistles displayed in a crackle-effect vase for a seasonal arrangement.

 

Helping Hands

Add interest to a plain wall with an extra-large clock in on-trend copper.
