    Global-style living room

    A neutral sofa and pale walls create a soothing backdrop in this exotic living room, while zigzag patterns and woven fabrics warm up the look and inject a touch of global-chic. Mix plain and patterned cushions for a look that isn’t too ‘done’ and opt for rich wooden furniture to add extra warmth. On large areas like curtains, swap zigzags for softer wave patterns to keep the scheme calm.
