FIVE WAYS TO GET THE LOOK

1 Start with a neu­tral base for walls and fur­ni­ture like so­fas and armchairs. Bring in colour with cush­ions, rugs, throws and other ac­ces­sories. 2

Key pieces in clas­sic shapes and dark hues are com­mon themes. In Julie’s home, the ebony of the cab­i­netry is echoed in the din­ing chairs, hall con­sole, cof­fee ta­ble and more. Mix with nat­u­ral wood tones to add warmth. 3

Rep­e­ti­tion and sym­me­try are also key el­e­ments of clas­sic style. 4

The tra­di­tional blue-and-white colour pal­ette looks great when lay­ered through­out. Try fab­rics in flo­rals, tick­ing, spots and plains. Stay with sim­i­lar tones for a pol­ished, co­he­sive look. 5

In­tro­duce pat­terns and tex­tures with cush­ions, rugs, wall­pa­per and linens in your cho­sen shades. Add a touch of the out­doors with pot­ted plants and flow­ers.

Colour play A blue-and-white pal­ette brings to­gether an eclec­tic mix of pat­terns.
