TRADE SE­CRETS

Rutherglen Reformer - - House & Home -

Use a neu­tral colour such as white for the back­drop of the room. Us­ing the same neu­tral colour for the car­pet, walls and larger items of fur­ni­ture will cre­ate a fresh, airy space.

Be bold with your fur­ni­ture, us­ing fresh colours such as bright yel­low to keep things light and make a state­ment.

Dis­play a dec­o­ra­tive piece on a wall to cre­ate a fea­ture, add tex­ture and give the space a main fo­cus point – in this case it’s the un­usual light fea­ture.

Don’t be afraid of black. Used spar­ingly it will give much more im­pact to your space.

Em­brace the art deco style in a con­tem­po­rary way with chrome fur­ni­ture. The bold lines will con­trast with the soft back­ground and give a mod­ern re­vival of this deco style.

In­cor­po­rate a glass ta­ble as it will al­low light to pass through with­out cre­at­ing a heavy-look­ing solid block of fur­ni­ture.
