Project inspiration colour and pattern
Design a modern living room scheme with bright hues and statement prints
unexpected ideas for making a bold statement in your living room using shades and shapes
Follow the 60-30-10 decorating rule to add interest to a neutral space if you’re colour shy: 60 per cent of a room is for your primary colour palette (think walls, floors, rugs and sofas), while 30 per cent is dedicated to your secondary colour palette (soft furnishings and accent furniture). ‘Your 10 per cent is your accent colour,’ says Will taylor, colour consultant. ‘this could include lamps, cushions, artwork and accessories.’
Project details this living room is a lesson in how to take a softly-softly approach to accenting. the classic combination of white walls and a dark wood floor serves as the perfect host to delicate dabs of dusky pink here, azure blue there. these are the Miami floor lamps, £275 each, from pooky. poltrona Frau’s Ninfea low-slung coffee table anchors the space.
