Fun, re­laxed and easy breezy, that’s what this invit­ing lounge set­ting is all about. And the key for dec­o­rat­ing suc­cess lies with the colour scheme. Shades of blue, pinky reds and whites, com­bined with light tim­ber and tex­tiles, merge for a suc­cinct look. It’s time to let your hair down and be ad­ven­tur­ous with shapes and lay­out.


• Avoid al­low­ing light-coloured soft fur­nish­ings to fade into the back­ground by choos­ing tex­tured fin­ishes on cush­ions, rugs, lamp cov­ers and more. Al­though re­strained in colour, the sur­face de­tail­ing will en­sure they take a star­ring role.

• Use a floor rug to ground your liv­ing room fur­nish­ings. Here, a round for­mat rug sets the scene for the play­ful fur­ni­ture ar­range­ment. No hard floors? Never fear! You can lay a rug over car­pet, too.

• Not a fan of white walls? There’s no rea­son why you can’t in­tro­duce colour to walls in this room. To make a start, iden­tify a shade you love in the fan­deck at your lo­cal paint store, then test out the light­est colour on the scale.
