Add large wall mirrors and furniture with reflective surfaces into your design scheme to maximise the amount of natural light in your living room to make it feel bigger and brighter.
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.
Think about alternatives to traditional living room furniture, such as the three-piece suite. It’s still possible to have a cosy area for relaxing and reading with less space-greedy furnishings. Swap an upholstered armchair for a wooden rocker with cushions; and bookcases for slimline ladder-style shelving. Wash walls and accessorise with subtle colour.
Reinvigorate your home this spring with a fresh and soothing colour palette of limestone, lichen and sage. 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.
