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.
