Place your pattern to create a theme, pattern can work as well in small living rooms as it does in large, but it pays to think carefully about where you put it. Wool fabrics are made for cosy country-style firesides, but keep tartans, checks, paisleys and florals confined to throws and cushions on sofas and armchairs, leaving walls for plain paint finishes. Add a natural flooring rug to bring the two sides of a room together.
Spotting a painted wall online that used lots of different shades of paint and big triangular shapes, the owners were keen to replicate the look. ‘We decided on different shapes of white, grey and peachy-pink for something unusual,’ they say.
Update inexpensive photo frames, painted in a colour that matches or contrasts with a key piece, plain wooden frames take on a designer look. Paint your frames with two coats of high-gloss paint, and complete the look by creating new mounts in dramatic marbled paper.
