Use a simple linen window treatment to counterbalance a bold patterned wallpaper. If you’re unsure about using pattern, a flash of colour will lift an otherwise neutral scheme. Here a lime green squiggly Jane Churchill design on a bench cushion highlights a Sandberg wallpaper with a grass print in muted tones. A shimmering sequin curtain panel from Habitat and filmy linen curtains turn the French window into a feature, and cushions in co-ordinating tones tie the scheme together.
