Be bold. A dramatic sitting room with a basalt painted feature wall and citrus yellow shelving to highlight. An electric fire brings the room to life and looks fantastically real with its flickering flames and perfectly sawn, round logs that we recessed into the wall on each side. Leather sofas sit elegantly in the space with zingy velvet cushions that pop. I love the way this room sets a formal yet cosy atmosphere. Socialise with friends or recline the sofas and it is the perfect cinema room. To get the look: use dark paint, neutral flooring and furniture. Then let it pop with accessories. Add a fire if you can for warmth and a beautiful focal point.
Every room needs a focal point, it offers a place for the eye to rest and assigns a room with a function, Larger rooms can have more than one focal point. This is a very common mistake, forgetting to give each room a purpose or point to focus on. Some rooms are simple, in a TV room the focal point usually ends up being the TV and the unit it is placed on, while all the other main objects in the room are focused and pointing towards the TV.
