Living room with cloud wallpaper

Living room with cloud wallpaper

Give a traditional room a thoroughly modern look with a daring wallpaper. This cloudscape design makes for a stunning backdrop to the classic blue furniture. It’s also neutral enough to allow for colourful pieces to be added to the room. We love the drinks trolley.

Neutral living room with picture shelves

Neutral living room with picture-shelf display

Hang picture shelves in your living room to create a pretty display of your favourite photographs. And if you bore easily, it’s simple to move them around or add new ones when you fancy a change. Picture frames aren’t the only thing that provide colour here – the eclectic mix of cushion prints adds plenty of interest to the pale-coloured scheme.

Modern grey living room with copper floor lamp

Modern grey living room with copper floor lamp

Got a narrow living room? Finding the right furniture can be a bit tricky, but sofas come in many sizes that won’t mean compromising on comfort. Ideally, you should have room on either side so that you can move around the room freely. A copper floor lamp lends effortless cool to this chic grey scheme.

Living room with diagonal alcove shelving

Living room with diagonal alcove shelving

Think outside the box and and try alcove shelving with a twist. A diagonal shelf adds a modern edge to this traditional room and provides a great spot for storing firewood without using up valuable floor space. The storage unit in this living room has been painted white for a brightening effect that matches the fire surround.

Living-room-with-teal-occasion-chair

Living room corner with teal occasion chair

Create an opulent feel in a living room corner with a velvet upholstered occasion chair or armchair in a gorgeous teal colour. Dark-blue walls and an aqua side table add to the indulgence. The colours here are all quite similar, so to stop them blurring together, add a hit of pattern to break them up and create a visual contrast.

Blue and green living room with zesty colour hits

Blue and green should never be seen, the old adage goes, but we disagree! Mix just about any blues with any greens and you’ve got yourself an effortlessly harmonious blend. Here, mellow blues and greens make a gentle backdrop for brighter hues like royal blue and lime – great if you favour a colour scheme with an energetic feel. Touches of pattern are good for breaking up blocks of colour.

Neutral living room with pink armchair

Neutral living room with pink armchair

Fans of pastels will love this pink armchair. The modern shape of the seat keeps the look up to date. A neutral backdrop is important when choosing colourful furniture, so that it doesn’t become over the top.  But that doesn’t mean it has to be the only colourful element in the room – a paler pink curtain fabric tones beautifully here.

Relaxed country living room with botanical wallpaper

A room with ‘country house’ decor is the perfect home for a traditional leather sofa. Keep it classic with wool upholstered chairs, tartan and lots of natural wood for timeless chic. Masculine colours, patterns and accessories will stop this look from becoming twee. The branch-print paper adds subtle pattern without dominating the room.

Characterful living room with large artwork

Characterful living room with large artwork

Artworks speak volumes about your tastes, interests and preferences, and make a big impact in any scheme. The walls here have been painted in a pale shade of green, which is the ideal backdrop to this neutral print. Furniture has been kept similarly simple, but a variety of prints and patterns are dotted about to create a cosy feel.

Scandi-hideaway-with-Chesterfield-style-sofa

Scandi hideaway with Chesterfield-style sofa

A traditional Chesterfield-style sofa can work brilliantly in a contemporary Scandi scheme. Alongside sleek, modern and mid-century-inspired pieces, it’ll make a room friendlier looking, for a cool-but-comfy spin on rustic style. A wood-effect wallpaper looks more interesting and feels cosier than a plain wall, but is much more subtle than a pattern.

Traditional living room with concrete-effect wallpaper

Traditional living room with concrete-effect wallpaper

Don’t let a shabby-chic living room drift into dated territory – a concrete-effect wallpaper and metal accessories keep it cool and contemporary. Copper is the chosen metal here and the table lamp and candlesticks give this vintage palette some welcome edge. Texture has been added with varying fabrics in pale pink and cushions in subtle patterns.

Living-room-with-cosy-clubhouse-feel

Living room with cosy clubhouse feel

Choose classic ingredients, such as rich red walls and leather seating for a living room with a clubhouse feel – laid-back living is the key in this beautiful scheme. Sumptuous velvet cushions in saffron yellow provide a beautiful contrast to the spicy red, while the artworks on the wall take more of a ‘blend-in’ approach.

Shabby chic living room with pastel-pink highlights

Shabby chic living room with pastel highlights

Forget fussy frills – the shabby-chic look is having a renaissance with polished metals, luxe fabrics and rough finishes for the ultimate in modern elegance. However, while rough textures are a great way to update shabby chic, this room still has a soothing colour scheme at its heart, with champagne pink, vintage lilac and dove grey.

Neutral living room with vintage trunk

Neutral living room with vintage trunk

This traditional living room oozes character, with its marble fireplace, elegant cornicing and attractive window. It can be hard to know how to decorate such a space, but a light palette keeps the focus on the period features. Meanwhile, an old trunk and ornate mirror are the perfect scheme ‘enhancers’.
