You're all about fun! You love to experiment with bold geometric patterns and you can't resist a splash of cheery colour – whether that's a sunny yellow, a pretty pink or a coastal blue. You want furniture that's comfortable but practical, too, in simple shapes that won't date too quickly, but still show off your style credentials.

You don't have to 'live in a house, a very big house in the country' to lust after this look.

Get this scheme right once, and you'll barely need to redecorating going forward. Though we would recommend you apply a fresh coat of paint to the walls and switch up your accessories once in a while.
