Deep teal green has the unusual quality of making a room feel cosy and enveloping in winter, but cool and shady in summer. Bring it to life with woods and leathers that have an orangey undertone for a pairing that’s direct from nature. Add a shot or two of indigo blue and whether you create a room that’s rustic or glamorous – or somewhere in between – this colour mix will exude quiet confidence.
The fad of giant plasma TVs mounted to walls is finally going out of style (and can we just say thank goodness!). We’re happy to wave goodbye to the days of ruining walls with giant unattractive screens. Wall-mounted televisions are good news from a space-saving point of view, but not great for style credentials or practicality – you can’t rearrange furniture as freely if the TV is secured in place. The TV unit has made a glorious comeback, this year more than ever. In 2018, our walls are free to decorate with art work and glorious bold colours.
Go glam and team sumptuous fabrics and papers in forest green with high-shine copper highlights for a luxurious feel. Copper is a great accent for a living room as it’s glam, but has a warm tone that makes a space feel cosy.
A room without texture can feel dull and lifeless, so add tactile surfaces for warmth and interest. Get the linear look with narrow-gauge shirt and pyjama patterns – perfect for smart-casual sittings rooms. Layering up voiles, cotton, cord and canvas twill on upholstery, soft furnishings and curtain treatments brings warmth and cosiness in spades. Timeless ‘chino’ tones give this look an easy style, while country stripes get a modern makeover in different widths and scales. Mixing styles likes this injects rhythm into a room.
