Love this living room

  • Soft voiles add a dreamy look to windows, without blocking out the sun.
  • This fashionable fabric is not only a wardrobe staple: use deep shades in light rooms or faded tones in smaller spaces.
  • Blue can appear chilly, so be sure to include welcoming walnut and tactile linen.
  • Add extra interest and some warmth underfoot with a thick, abstract rug.
  • Indigo is a good choice for large sofas as it can help them appear less bulky.

 

Good Idea

Use a streamlined bench against a wall to display artwork, throws and cushions.

 

Styling Tip

Combine artisanal fabrics, like ikat, batik and hand-printed Indian cottons, as they naturally feature inky tones.

 

Expand Space

Cool colours will help to make small corners appear bigger.
