Living Room / July 1, 2018 / .
Give some wow factor to a neutral scheme by packing it with flourishes of florals. Rich claret and crimson shades are matched with the warmth of worn leather in this country living room. Blooms are exquisitely depicted on tea stained linens, beautiful curtains show off the pattern to best effect. A soft button, back leather sofa adds to the country house feel, while elegant, vintage style lamp bases and mirrors hint that pieces have been acquired over time.
The fad of giant plasma TVs mounted to walls is finally going out of style, and can we just say thank goodness. We are happy to wave goodbye to the days of ruining walls with giant unattractive screens. Wall mounted televisions are good news from a space saving point of view, but not great for style credentials or practicality, you can not rearrange furniture as freely if the TV is secured in place. The TV unit has made a glorious comeback, this year more than ever.
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.
Who says wallpaper needs to go on your walls. Make a striking statement in your living room by wallpapering a key piece of furniture, such as a sideboard. This is also a fantastic way to upcycle an old item that might otherwise end up at the tip. Go for wood or brick effect wallpaper for an on trend trompe loeil look.
