Decadent living room with metallic tripod lamp

Create a living room scheme that’s the ideal spot for a couple of pre- or post-dinner drinks, or even just some alone time after a long day. Tan leather club chairs lend this space a luxurious feel and are arranged in such a way as to facilitate long chats or reading time. Simple window dressing, a statement rug, black and white photographs and a metallic tripod lamp keep the look more modern than traditional.

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.

Tranquil blue living room with blue velvet sofaac

Tranquil blue living room with blue velvet sofa

High ceilings give a room such lovely proportions and this blue living room is no exception. With curtains hung at ceiling level, the blue fabric gently drapes down to the ground, showing off its flowing length. A velvet blue sofa in a more jewel-coloured tone complements both the wall colour and the curtain fabric, while adding a richness to the scheme.

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.

Yellow living room with pastel accessories

Yellow living room with pastel accessories

Pair yellow walls with pastel accessories to create a pretty scheme that’s pleasingly subtle, but colourful at the same time. Similar tones of each colour are the key, so that one doesn’t come across as bolder than the other. Grey fabrics on the curtain and sofa, plus wooden furniture anchor the look, keeping it low-key, rather than sugary.

Yellow living room with statement wallpaper

Yellow living room with statement wallpaper

Paper the wall around a fireplace to create maximum impact in a living room. This design packs a real punch and has been perfectly paired with muted yellow walls and mid-century-style furniture in a neutral palette of natural wood and greys. Cushions in tones picked out from the wallpaper help to tie the look together and add brightness throughout the rest of the room.

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.

Scottish-inspired rustic living room with cosy fireplace

Rustic often means stripped back walls and bare floors, but don’t be afraid to add colour and wallpaper to soften the look. Choosing a wallpaper with an endearing lino cut motif, such as the wheatsheaves seen here, instantly evokes the sense of a country cottage. Brass accents and woven wool fabrics enhance the cosseting effect.

Boost a soft pink decorating scheme, and create a touch of old-school Hollywood glamour, with metallic wallpaper, faded velvets and touches of brass or aged gold.

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.

Moody blue sitting room full of style and glamour

If neutrals are your go-to colour palette, the idea of a predominantly inky blue sitting room may need some careful consideration. But for drama, style and wow factor, this shade really is hard to beat. Team it with contrasting metallics, sleek fabrics, such as velvet and silk, and a softly textured rug… and, of course, a perfectly co-ordinated Christmas tree.

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.

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.

Green and blue living room with yellow accents

Blue and green living room with exotic wallpaper

If you prefer a colour scheme with more energy, mellow blues and greens make a gentle backdrop for brighter hues like royal blue and lime. Touches of pattern are good for breaking up blocks of colour, as perfectly demonstrated in this room. Here too, a blend of blues and greens avoids becoming murky with the acidic highlights of yellow.

If you love colour, own it. Go all out with your wallpaper choices, like in this living room. The marbling effect makes for a dramatic backdrop, so keep your accessories simple.
