Create a new living room look with a contrasting scheme

A living room that's great for family life doesn't have to fall short on the style stakes

Give a neutral living room a warm update by adding subtle hints or orange, earthy red and biscuit.

Opt for two-tone cushions Fabrics and cushions in contrasting earthy tones are essential for this scheme. Fill the sofa with a mixture ofcushions and striped fabrics will work well as curtains ad blinds.

Create a zoned area A natural rug with plenty of texture will look great on a neutral carpet and help define the seating area

Add in the details Plenty of bowls, vases, lamps and picture frames in punchy earthy tones with finnish off the scheme and create its warm look.
