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.
A common mistake that most of us are guilty of painting first. Put that paint brush down! First, you need to pick out the rooms fabrics and main textiles, such as rugs and curtains. Because it is simply much easier to find fabrics that we love and then pick out paint to match. While it is much harder to find a fabric that we love, that also just so happens to match the paint we have already put on our walls.
