Living Room / June 13, 2018 /
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.
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.
