Pared back living room

This look is about slowing down and noticing the beauty of simple design done well; raw wood and touches of ochre and blush bring the space to life. 

This new lifestyle embraces a move back to a simple aesthetic - smooth shapes, natural textures, warm colours of mustard, rose and burnt orange - embracing the Modern Maker culture.

Furniture and accessories are both considered with a pared-back, streamlined feel, giving the living room a relaxed and laidback atmoshpere. Special treatments have been applied to walls and floors, think cork flooring and clever wallcoverings to introduce texture.

‘Our concept for the roomset living room started with a utilitarian ethos that anyone can follow in their own home: strip back then layer up. Carefully considered furniture and textures, together with pops of on-trend accent colours, give this rustic scheme a warming, inviting feel,’ says Good Homes' style editor, Jessica Taverner, who oversees our decorating and shopping features, as well as the cover shoots.

Dramatic kitchen

White has no place here – pitch black reigns supreme across cabinets and appliances, paired with shimmering tones of copper and brass.

‘We’re doing something new for Good Homes’ kitchen roomset – we are embracing the power of black. This is a daring twist on the safety of monochrome: white is replaced with metallic hues to give this very contemporary space an undeniable, irresistible glamour,’ explains interior stylist Kate McPhee, who works on projects for magazines, television and events.

This gorgeous kitchen is a real statement. The modern, black units and glossy hi-tech black appliances from CDA make this room stand the test of time.

On-trend copper moves this on from a classic monochrome scheme to the latest looks for kitchens - use on worktops, splashbacks, cookware and accessories to add shiny mettallic accents. Extra-large, industrial-style pendants and grey-plank flooring complete the look to give this kitchen its sophisticated edge.

Dark and mysterious sum up this glamorous scheme, combining accents of gold and brass to create an intimate dining experience.

Creating a personal five-star dining experience in the comfort of your own home is easy with this moody and enigmatic scheme.

Mix gold and brass details with sparkling glassware and decadent touches of marble to make the most of this luxe trend. Keep other colours to a minimum and choose a soft palette of blush, nudes and rose gold.

Use a modern glass topped table and oversized, statement lighting to bring the focus back to the main event.

This family space provides the opportunity for everyone to spend time together. It’s modular, modern-day living at its finest - multi-functional furniture in bright colours of teal and orange provide the backdrop for the latest technology.

Think projectors, smart products for lighting and heating, VR-friendly chairs and a space to work out, plus ideas for storage and areas for crafting and home-working.

Flooring is stylish and practical, using the different spaces.
