Add rich bright accent colours to lift a neutral space. Take your living room from spring to summer by simply changing your accessories. Go for a vivid, rusty orange to bring about a cheery scheme that is sure to keep your smiling all summer long. Choosing a different accent for the finishing touches is an easy way to change the look and feel of the room.
Consider transforming a section of a white living room with country cream. Floor to ceiling shelving is the perfect vehicle for this classic shade, smart fitted bookshelves occupy two walls and a corner of this magnificent room and frame a panelled window along the way. Paint the architrave and panelling too, as well as the back of shelves for a truly cohesive feel.
Bring elements from the garden indoors with a classic wallpaper showcasing country flora and fauna. This spring inspired living room features gentle blooms, birds at play and leafy greens. Wirework pots and antiquities complete the potager look. Spring greens, soft lilacs and pretty pinks on white backgrounds give this classic style a modern twist.
Create a tailored, designerly look in your living room with pinstripes, they look just as smart on your walls as they do on suits. Choose soft greys so the scheme does not feel overly masculine, and add a luxe touch with accents of gold in your accessories and soft furnishings. Keep window treatments plain and simple, making the walls the star feature.
