White living room with large floor-mounted artwork

White living room with large floor-mounted artwork

Yellow is great as an accent colour in a neutral space – all you need is a throw or a cushion to add a little brightness. A floor-propped picture looks really stunning, yet it is far easier than hanging a really big print on the walls – finding the perfect position and ensuring it’s straight can be really rather tricky, after all.

Neutral living room with blue sofa

Neutral living room with blue sofa and palm print cushion

If you want a bit of colour in your living room, why not try a blue sofa? The colour of denim, blue can be very versatile and almost act as a neutral. Whether you like botanical palm prints or monochrome zigzags, a sofa in this colour will work well with either print or both combined. Plus the dog seems to like it, too.

Country living room with exposed brick fireplace

Country living room with exposed brick fireplace

An exposed brick fireplace, log store and wooden beams lend this space a truly country feel. But it’s not all quite as rustic as you might expect. The upholstery and sofas have a very luxurious feel about them, and it’s definitely not the kind of country living room you would want dirty wellies tramping into.

In a property with wooden beams like this, you might say that you don’t need very much else to make it special. That could well be true, but there’s no reason to let a striking focal point put you off using colour. The bright chair and rug here, plus all the artworks, work a treat.

Tent-like attic living room with sloped ceilings on both sides

Tent-like attic living room with sloped ceilings on both sides

Thinking of converting your loft to get an extra bedroom? If you have the space, consider creating a suite of rooms including a bedroom, en suite and living room. Alternatively, if you have a landing or hall at the top of a staircase, why not turn that into a comfy seating area, rather than using it as a thoroughfare?

Neutral living room with white gloss storage unit

Neutral living room with white gloss storage unit

This neat living room corner has a couple of valuable lessons to learn. Firstly, the white gloss sideboard has been used to house the DVD player and router, and keep wires neatly out of the way. Secondly, the shelf above was old and past its best, but a vinyl-look marble covering has given it a brand-new look.
