Living room

  • Crisp, fresh living room with denim tones

    From indigo to navy and cobalt, blue hues sit particularly well together, so offer great scope for pattern mixing. In this living room room, cushions with small-scale motifs are successfully combined with robust striped blinds and a bold indigo geometric on the screen.

  • Classic living room with graphic simplicity

    Softly striped sheers and a rug in a chalky pink palette harmoniously balance with the bolder circular designs of the rattan chair, table and floor light – all with fine black metal frames to keep the look light.

  • Horticultural living space with mismatched furniture

    Simple utility is given a light and pretty dimension with horticulturally themed decorative flourishes and happily mismatched pattern in schemes that embody relaxed charm.

  • Contemporary living room with geometric patterns

    To ensure patterns work comfortably together, choose designs from a similar tonal palette and complement them with plain walls and upholstery. Adding sculptural pieces of furniture and lighting brings an additional layer of interest to the scheme without overpowering it.

  • Quintessential English country-style living room with artwork

    Subtly toned chinoiserie curtains and an antique rug define this seating corner, which features a mix of textural fabrics including velvet, linen and hessian, creating an elegant living space with timeless allure.

  • Classic living room with soft shades of pale sky blue

    Opting for bold, block colour, such as azure, denim or sapphire, on upholstery and in rugs allows depth to be added with pattern. Here, a fine ticking stripe and geometric print fabrics provide lively highlights that catch the eye.

  • Living room with vivid shades and bold pattern

    When using a lot of hot, spicy shades, introducing a crisp, black and white pattern will act as a focal point and keep the look modern.

  • Living room with a fashionably elegant look

    This smart living room scheme, which mixes different-sized checks on upholstery, blinds and cushions in a dashing combination of black, white and yellow, gives traditional gingham a refreshing contemporary twist.
