Start with a pared-back palette of cool grey, bright white and natural wood textures, then add mid-century-style furniture - look out for clean lines and splayed feet to fast-track the look. Here, the geometric wallpaper transforms an awkward, disused alcove into a standout focal point, while adding a retro touch. Then, break up the look with punchy pops of orange and add modern hits of copper to bring the scheme up to date.
