We've chosen five of the best decorating ideas for die-hard supporters. Which room colour scheme gets your vote?

1. The 'conservative' blue room

Show off your traditional values and support for the Tories by going for a classical blue hue in your living room. Here, the alcove shelving and luxurious panelled walls, painted in a cool blue, adds drama and understated elegance to this conservative lounge. The scattered blue cushions add a pop of colour to the foreground and softens the hard lines of the sofa.

2. The red family room

This homely living room is a 'Labour' of love, with its fresh-painted deep crimson walls, layered furnishings and carefully-placed accessories. There's no denying which political party this scheme represents. This comforting room, is one to relax in at the end of a hard day, with its warming notes of cream and red in the sofa, artwork and fabrics. A bouquet of English roses on the upholstered footstool, draws the eye to the left of this picture, and creates a lovely contrasting focal point.

3. The modern yellow sitting room

If you're supporting the Lib Dems, try decorating your home with yellow. To be fair, this bright pigment is a brave colour choice, but it works beautifully in this modern living room scheme, broken up by the liberal scattering of grey and white details in the cushions and floral prints.

4. The eco-friendly green utility room

If you believe in the Green Party's eco-friendly values, you might like this calm, green utility area with its sustainable wooden furniture and ample storage for all your cleaning and recycling needs. If you want to recreate this look at home, install a natural wooden wall and floor panelling, paint it in a soothing green hue and add a peg rail to hang a wooden ironing board, chalk board and feather duster.

5. The purple home office

UKIP voters, reach for the purple paint and transform a secluded corner into a smart home office, complete with plum accessories and a velvet upholstered chair. Complement the colourful canvas with a black, classic desk and matching floating shelves above.
