Double-length country living room

Double-length country living room

Make the most of the natural structure of an old house by highlighting wooden beams and turning them into a real feature. This double-length living room benefits from a large open-plan feel, while providing two separate living spaces marked out by the supporting wooden structure. You can easily sneak between both, but it’s easy to get space, too.

Neutral country living room with traditional furniture

Neutral country living room with traditional furniture

Enhance a neutral country living room with traditional furniture in a beautiful wood that has plenty of character. The antique cabinet here has gorgeous markings on it and its depth of colour warms up the scheme. In this space, the walls are low-key and pared back, though the overall look quite ornate, with its gilt-framed pictures, wall-mounted candle holders and lavish log burner.

Rustic living room in Scottish cottage

Scottish-inspired rustic living room with cosy fireplace

Think outside the box – rustic often means going back to the bare walls and stripped timbers, but don’t be afraid to add a touch of comfort too. Choosing a wallpaper with an endearing linocut motif, such as the wheatsheaf print shown here, instantly evokes the sense of a country cottage. Brass accents and woven wool fabrics enhance the cosseting effect.

Rustic living room in country cottage

Rustic farmhouse-style living room

Choose tailored pieces, such as a neatly upholstered sofa and elegant table lamp, to create a pleasing juxtaposition with the rustic look of bare brick and roughly hewn wood. The lesson to learn here is simple: don’t be afraid to mix and match smarter, clean-lined pieces with the more pared-back elements typically found in country rooms.

Cosy living room with a French rustic feel

Create a cosy corner in a shabby chic home, or a living room with a rustic vintage style, using carefully selected rough-luxe furniture and tactile accessories. Warm up a cool-coloured room with a large floor rug, re-upholster a French regency-style armchair in a simple blue linen and layer with cosy accessories such as a faux-fur throw and plump cushion. A handy side table and an old steamer-trunk-cum-coffee-table, both with distressed paint finishes, provide plenty of useful surfaces for personal displays (and cups of tea). Floor-length curtains in a light-coloured cotton complete the vintage-meets-rough-hewn country cabin feel.

Glamorous living room with fireplace and bright furniture

Glamorous living room with fireplace and bright furniture

Use bright furniture to bring your living room to life. Here the moody blues and pale greys highlight the graceful outlines of these mid-century armchairs. The furniture the owners originally brought with them from their more ‘normal’ house didn’t work, so they had to look at replacing everything. If you’re lucky enough to have space, pieces need to have more stature and depth to avoid if feeling cavernous.

And the panel-effect wallpaper adds to the period feel. The finishing touch for Christmas is this huge artificial Norwegian Grand Fir Christmas tree, with decorations in traditional colours.

Converted barn living room with mezzanine level and large Christmas tree

Converted barn living room with mezzanine level and large Christmas tree

If you’ve got the ceiling height, flaunt it – especially when it comes to your Christmas tree. For a classic festive look with a twist, deck out your tree with quirky personalised decorations, from photographs to your baby’s first shoes. A mezzanine level is a smart addition to a converted barn, as it allows you to admire the lofty height of the space – including the original beams – but also gives you an extra room to use as a snug, spare bedroom or even a music studio.
