A room without texture can feel dull and lifeless, so add tactile surfaces for warmth and interest. Get the linear look with narrow gauge shirt and pyjama patterns perfect for smart casual sittings rooms. Layering up voiles, cotton, cord and canvas twill on upholstery, soft furnishings and curtain treatments brings warmth and cosiness in spades. Timeless chino tones give this look an easy style, while country stripes get a modern makeover in different widths and scales. Mixing styles likes this injects rhythm into a room.
Choose a subtle shade of limestone coloured paint for walls then layer different but tonal shades of green on wood and furnishings to create a restful scheme. A chalky white sofa will add a punchy highlight to the room, layer it with cushions depicting songbirds and Spring foliage. Bring the garden indoors by mixing faux plants with fresh spring blooms and accessorise with striking oversized botanical prints, pretty wire work planters and birdcages.
