ABOUT THE STYLE
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.
TIPS FOR YOU
• 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.
