Living Room / March 26, 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.
If you are willing to be brave, colour blocking can reward you with a stunning and impactful new look. Here, dark sage green walls, a Millennial pink corner sofa and and a mustard yellow armchair and cushions work together, creating a joyful and welcoming scheme that is never jarring.
After an effortlessly contemporary look. You can not go wrong with monochrome. Create a dramatic backdrop to your scheme with a bold black and white wallpaper, such as this striking cityscape. Paint woodwork black to frame your feature wall and turn it into a work of art. To soften the scheme, add a smattering of furniture and accessories in natural wood tones.
Create a classic scheme with laid back accommodating sofas in warm biscuit tones and layer up soft whites and watery blues in simple country patterns. Small scale stripes, checks and hand blocked florals work well together on cushions, blinds and chair covers to lift the look. Two tone natural linen curtains keep the windows soft and a trio of roller blinds can be lowered or raised to keep the summer sunshine filtered as it moves around the room.
