Retro and chic, this living room calls to the 1950s traveller in us. It could be the smart cream and walnut sideboard, which has the feel of a chic steamer trunk, sitting against that deep South-of-France sea-blue wall. It could be the low-level sofa, blending seamlessly with the paint tone, and allowing that emotive poolside painting on the wall to sing. Or the combination of all of these things. Regardless, this is a living room look that’s deeply luxurious.
