Country living room with purple velvet armchair

Country living room with purple velvet armchair

Paint country living room walls in an off-white yellow shade to create a neutral scheme that suits the style and period of your home. This tone is warmer than white, but still versatile enough for all manner of colours to be included in the scheme. Here, interest has been added with the purple velvet armchair, patterned ottoman and plush mixture of cushions.

Rustic living room with wood-burning stove

Create a focal point with a wood-burning stove – after all, there’s something about the gently dancing flames of a real fire that makes people feel instantly at home. Fairy lights hung on a beam above the inglenook fireplace and on the main supporting beam also send a warming glow around the room.

Living room nook with photograph table

Put your favourite photographs on display by grouping them together on top of a table. It’s much simpler than committing to hanging them on a wall, and you can move them around very easily when you want others to come to the forefront. Keep the bigger frames towards the back, though, so that the smaller ones can be seen.

Cosy green country living room

Add plenty of textured fabrics to a country scheme to create a welcoming feel. The dog-patterned cushion is super cute and goes perfectly with the green wall paint. A wood-burning stove or open fire is almost essential to achieving a country look. Ideal for keeping chilly nights at bay, stoves create a focal point in a room and achieve the hygge look we all aspire to.

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.

Green-and-white living room with simple rustic glamour

A smart sofa, plus simple flooring and lots of rustic wood, is the perfect base for a country living room scheme. For a more refined look, swap traditional neutrals for a silver-grey palette throughout the space. Here, the wallpaper pattern features a subtle shimmer, while accessories with gleaming finishes – from cushions to glassware – bring a chic touch.

Christmas decorated staircase in country home

Christmas decorated staircase in traditional country home

Filling the bottom of a wide staircase with gifts, present sacks and other Christmas decorations is a great way to build up the excitement ahead of the big day, as the family will pass them regularly ahead of the holiday. Cover the banister with greenery and garlands and fill individually named Santa sacks with beautifully wrapped and beribboned presents.

Red, white and blue living area perfect for Christmas

Red, white and blue backdrop for a classic festive themed living area

Warm up neutral spaces with thick rugs, in easy-to match primary colours. This white rug is perfect, with a geometric print in blue and red. The red velvet chairs are perfect for this time of year, and the whole space only needs a few Christmas baubles to celebrate the season. And a mince pie or two, of course.

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.

Quirky green Christmas living room with twin armchairs

Quirky green Christmas living room with twin armchairs

The eye-catching green sofas here are a real vocal point of the room, designed by Stephen Ryan. They add a contemporary twist to the traditional country-house look. 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.

Nordic style living room

Nordic style living room

A grey and white palette, reindeer skins and sheepskin throws make this living room the height of cosy Nordic style. Crisp, white walls, wooden floors and neutral accessories create a light and bright room – a great setting for a brightly decorated Christmas tree. The log-filled alcove is not only useful, but is a feature in itself.
