Living Room. Saturday , October 14th , 2017 - 18:01:13 PM
Get cosy, whether it’s a bijou country cottage or a studio flat, it can be tricky to create a relaxing bolt hole when your front door opens straight into your living room. Take the emphasis away from the entrance by creating a focal point with thoughtfully arranged seating. Here, a neat two-seater and comfy armchair have been placed at a 90-degree angle to a slim side table and lamp. A cool neutral palette works beautifully with the rustic plasterwork and the roller blind makes the most of a recessed window to add extra square inches to the room.
Add an elaborate trim to a cushion cover, for a super-modern finish in the living room, go for a bright trim on a neutral cushion – neon on grey, navy or black, say. Remove the pad and pin your chosen braiding around the edge of the top face, folding neat 45° angles at the corners, then hand stitch.
Make use of an awkward space, in a small living room, every piece of furniture has to earn its keep so it’s a great excuse to make a bold statement with striking modern chairs. These acid yellow beauties don’t overwhelm the space due to their fine steel frames, which allow you to see underneath and through them to make the room feel bigger. Continue the graphic theme with a round black table, monochrome rug and minimal floor lamp.
