Open-plan contemporary living room
A monochrome scheme is softened with the use of brown in the furnishings in this open-plan living area. The owners had planned to keep the original fireplace to save money, but the builders took it out by mistake, so they chose a simple contemporary one from LivingStyle to replace it that both blends in and creates a calming focal point to the living area. Underfloor heating was laid under the tiles to keep the big open-plan area warm. The sofa came from DFS.

Living room inspired by nature
Cool and sophisticated, mid grey is a great foil for warm, grainy wood finishes. Despite being simple, this box fireplace surround, filled with chopped logs, is an eye-catching focal point.
Striking blue living room
For a unique scheme, a statement mural is perfect. Digital printing allows choice over the image and colours used and can be made bespoke to fit a space. The grey furnishings in a mixture of textures help to soften the look.
Chocolate and pink living room
