A gentle palette of warm, mixed neutrals gives you the freedom to play with different accent colours and interesting textures and finishes as your room scheme evolves. A modern, square style sofa can be tucked into a corner or used to zone a seating space in a larger room. A design with a movable footstool section and removable covers gives you flexibility. A style neutral, straight legged sideboard in classic oak will work in other rooms and with various decorating schemes.
Use an eye catching wallpaper to unify different living zones in an open plan space. Here, two separate seating areas are visually drawn together by a whimsical botanical print running around the entire circumference of the room. Paper from the dado rail upwards to prevent the scheme from becoming too busy, it is a sneaky way to save money on your scheme, too.
Velvet may be the fabric of the season, but a classic corner arrangement still rules the roost when it comes to sofa design. Corner sofas have continued to increase is popularity this year, with the rise of open plan living and relaxed style living spaces. Sales of corner sofas were up 56 per cent last season and we expect to see this continue to grow. Many ranges offer storage solutions in the chaise end, which are great for those short of space.
Wow with a woodland theme by using colours taken from nature. Add hints of sophisticated modern romance combined with old fashioned glamour in a sitting room with subtle shades of soft rose, blush pink and warm putty tones. Include touches of wood and straight legged furniture for a mid century take on this feminine look.
