Grey living room with bay window and floor-length curtains

Grey living room with bay window and floor-length curtains

Go for a traditional window treatment if you want to stay true to the look of a period property. Rather than one pair of curtains, this window has a second set in the middle so that every frame in the bay window is defined. A curtain pelmet in a matching fabric also creates a look of times gone by.

Living room with grey-patterned upholstery

Modern living-dining room with grey-patterned upholstery

A casual seating area just behind the dining table gives this open-plan space a cosy feel. Grey walls create a cocooning effect that goes perfectly with the patterned upholstery on the armchairs and footstools. Above the fireplace, a modern landscape painting adds a hit of colour.

Living room with contemporary bird wallpaper

Living room with contemporary bird wallpaper

Love neutrals but want a little something extra? Then try a large-scale wallpaper design that looks more like an artwork or mural than a wallpaper. What sets this print apart is the fact it is one continuous piece, rather than a small pattern repeated over and over. We absolutely love it.

Modern country living room with exposed brick wall

Modern country living room with exposed brick wall

The massive brick wall has a barnlike feel, even though the house is a new-build. As well as creating a rustic look, the brickwork contrasts wonderfully with the deep purple of the upholstery. Cream furniture acts as a highlighter, creating a perfectly balanced scheme.

Grey country living room with built-in log store

Grey country living room with built-in log store

Dark cladded grey walls create a Scandinavian feel that’s lightened with off-white sofas. Built in to the wall is a clever log store that is as decorative as it is practical. A wood-burning stove in the corner casts a warming glow over the space, which is especially lovely on cool spring evenings.

Reading corner with built-in shelving

Reading corner with built-in shelving

It’s simple to make a reading corner – all you need is a great armchair. Pick one that complements your wall colour and you’re good to go. Ideally, position your chair near a window so it benefits from plenty of natural light. A built-in shelving unit here offers plenty of space for trinkets and books, without intruding on the floor space.

Double-duty snug and home office

Double-duty snug and home office

This small room off the main sitting room provides an extra living space that doubles up as an office. For a family with children, this set-up is ideal because it means that kids can play in one room while their parents are nearby. Glass doors create an open-plan feel, whether they’re open or closed.

Striking living room with bookshelf wallpaper

Striking living room with bookshelf wallpaper

Add wow factor to your living room with a bold wallpaper. This bookshelf wallpaper certainly does the trick here, prompting you to ask, ‘Is it real?’ A dark leather sofa toughens up the pastel-coloured print, while the accessories add texture and a hit of yellow.

Lilac living room with grey corner sofa

Bored of neutral walls? Then get the paint brush out and try a pinky lilac in your living room. This shade goes really well with the grey corner sofa. Cushions in various colours and prints make for a fun and relaxed look. A dark berry hue in the curtains adds depth to the scheme.

Scandi-style living room with large arc lamp

Scandi-style living room with large arc lamp

Love Scandi style? Grey walls are a key ingredient. They’re also great for enhancing the period feel of a property, especially when contrasted with the freshness of white painted windows. Sheepskins and cosy rugs will always look the part, too, no matter the time of year.

Neutral living room with Gothic wall frame

Neutral living room with Gothic wall frame

The Gothic wall frame around the window was revealed during restoration work and dates back to the 1300s. This makes it a hard look to replicate, but just goes to show how much period features can add character to a space. If you’re lucky enough to have them, let them take pride of place in your scheme.

Stunning country views are clearly the inspiration for this living room scheme. Overscaled hydrangea print curtains have been paired with upholstered furniture in shades of green to bring the outdoors inside.

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

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.

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.
