    Victorian-style living room in cool neutrals

    Traditional-style furniture and elaborate patterns are offset with a light and fresh colour palette for a modern spin on Victorian style in this living room. When it comes to wallpaper, choose a modern twist on a classic Victorian pattern, like this damask in whisper-quiet colours rather than rich hues.

    Black and neutral living room

    In this neutral living room a black accent colour adds definition, character and energy. Balance is key – stick to black occasional furniture and accessories only or it will feel oppresive. Introduce pattern but only in subtle designs and shades that don’t overwhelm, such as the hints-of-circles wallpaper and bird-and-branch cushion print.
