Living Room / June 22, 2018 / Narcisse.
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.
Mint is the perfect colour to give your living space a cool, refreshing vibe. Create an informal, effortless feel by mixing it with relaxed denim blue and slate grey, then bring the whole palette to life with pops of crisp white, chartreuse and zesty lime. Make it mellower in winter by switching in accents of navy blue and soft purple.
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.
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.
