The up­dated mid-cen­tury aes­thetic of this gor­geous sit­ting room won over our judges. “I love the pair­ing of the light fix­ture with that sofa,” says Jes­sica, Tem­ple & Webster’s head of styling. “It’s very so­phis­ti­cated. It feels a bit old-world New York, hark­ing back to the olden days, but an up­dated ver­sion of it.” beauty se­crets:

Beau­ti­ful Rooms fi­nal­ist Paola em­braced her favourite colour com­bi­na­tion – black, grey, blue and tan – and her pre­ferred species (thank you, ‘Black Lion’ print from Crate Ex­pec­ta­tions) when cre­at­ing a sec­ond fam­ily liv­ing room in her Mel­bourne home. A slim-armed Ch­ester­field from West Elm echoes the print’s mas­culin­ity but is soft­ened by an ot­toman found in Paola’s mother’s garage, cov­ered in a classy blue vel­vet (try Spot­light for sim­i­lar). The deco-in­spired ‘Rochelle 9’ pen­dant in Brushed Bronze from Bea­con Light­ing is a brassy com­ple­ment. >

“I WANTED THE ROOM TO FEEL A BIT tra­di­tional BUT WITH A mod­ern edge” ~ PAOLA, HOME­OWNER
