Living Room / June 29, 2018 / .
Before decorating or furnishing an awkwardly shaped living room consider how best to optimise the space available. Think about an L shaped sofa in a tight eaves space teamed with trunks that can function as coffee tables as well as handy storage. Keep a dark room white to make the most of what little light there is.
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.
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.
Give some wow factor to a neutral scheme by packing it with flourishes of florals. Rich claret and crimson shades are matched with the warmth of worn leather in this country living room. Blooms are exquisitely depicted on tea stained linens, beautiful curtains show off the pattern to best effect. A soft button, back leather sofa adds to the country house feel, while elegant, vintage style lamp bases and mirrors hint that pieces have been acquired over time.
