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.
Set to be all about rich, deep and warm colours, burgundy, terracotta and aubergine. Here in this home office/music room, the baseline is warmth and cosiness, accented by bright pops of colour, like the yellow lamp and turquoise cushions. Those deeper, rusty and purple-rich colours are perfect to mix with dark woods found in vintage or antique pieces of furniture. It is definitely a good time to stop hiding grannys dark side table or bookcase, they could add character to your interiors and help create an atmosphere that is at once familiar, comfortable and stylish.
