Liv­ing rooms.

The se­cret to a great liv­ing area is lay­er­ing; achieve the right bal­ance of har­mo­nious colours and tex­tures and the room will al­ways feel invit­ing. Lay­ers don’t just en­hance the phys­i­cal com­fort of a space, they also add depth and please the eye.

Ev­ery liv­ing room needs a fo­cal point, too, be it a fire­place, a view to the land­scape be­yond or a spec­tac­u­lar pen­dant light. “Com­fort and live­abil­ity are vi­tal to a liv­ing room,” says Mel­bourne in­te­rior de­signer Ade­laide Bragg. “I fo­cus on cre­at­ing a bal­anced lay­out of a sofa par­al­lel to a fire­place, with chairs or arm­chairs ar­ranged in a square for­ma­tion. And I like to dis­play clients’ much-loved pieces, be­cause per­son­al­ity is im­por­tant.”
