Set against french grey walls and a grey sofa, the feature ochre armchair adds the perfect subdued splash of colour to an otherwise cold room. Whilst the ornate gold mirror, balances the two tones, drawing you in.

Idyllic Reading Nook

Ideal Reading Nook

Create an idyllic reading nook, by simply taking an unused corner and furnishing it with a combination of warm, cosy textures. Accents of grey placed against a paler background draws attention to this ever-so-enticing mustard-yellow chaise. Decorate with piles of your favourite magazines and coffee table books and make this your personal respite space for a 5 minute time-out with cuppa.

Furniture Divas have a selection of fabulous Chaise Longues to recreate the look.

Moulding Framed Wallpaper

The idea of a feature wall might be enticing but isn’t always practical. Instead we’d suggest a feature wallpaper. A striking alternative to a whole re-papered wall, it sets off the rest of the furniture and looks bold and fresh against the classic grey and white shades. Quirky pom pom cushions add an extra element of warmth and comfort to the room.

Find inspired pom pom cushions at Dunelm Mill and moulding wallpapers at Cole and Son

Yellow Accent Chair

Update any room with a bright, bold chair. This particular mustard yellow desk chair brightens up a classical study, but would also work within an other-wise stark kitchen around a dining table.  Its modern and sleek dimensions also make it a versatile piece ideal for a small space.

Kids Bedroom

The obvious place for creative decor, a children’s bedroom can be easily updated. We love how this ladder has been cleverly redirected into a bold bookshelf for favourite stories. We also, love that it forms the basis (and trunk) of the inspired tree feature.

Framed Wall

Framed Wall

Use various shapes and sizes of empty photograph frames to flatter wall detailing such as beautiful panelling or original brickwork. Ideal for hallways. This combined selection of yellow and antique gold shaded frames set against a dove grey painted wall is elegant and interesting.

We love the selection of frames at Horsfall and Wright
