Artisan tiles are too beautiful just for the bathroom: used around a fireplace they add a neo-Moorish mood to this living room.
Chic and colourful living room
Bright colours, such as this lemon yellow, used sparingly with soft tones of grey and blue create a chic look. Mirrored alcoves create the illusion of more space and frame the fireplace, drawing the eye to it as a focal point.
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.
Spacious pink and white living room
Modern pink sofas bring a colourful element to this spacious white space. The ruched texture on the sofas, combined with the deep shag pile carpet, create a soft, relaxed feel.
Modern living room storage
Floating storage furniture, especially in white gloss, boosts the sense of space in a room. The gentleman's club-style chair and stone flooring add charm and warmth to the minimalist look.
Quirky living room
Turning the boundaries of convention on its head, a strip of wallpaper depicting a knitted pattern has been hung vertically on the wall. The yellow chair adds a shot of colour next to the soft grey tones of the wallpaper.
Open-plan city living room
A large-scale butterfly artwork and the handcrafted mirror fit perfectly into this double-height living space. Soft browns, greys and small shots of yellow have been translated from the painting into the room, tying the space together.
Tudor-inspired living room
The undulating folds of the iconic ruffled neckwear from Tudor times provides the ‘look-at-me’ inspiration for this striking chair. Matched with wooden panelling and postcard portraits, the 'Tudor' look is complete.
Soft modern living room
Wall-to-wall carpet does a wonderful job of uniting an open-plan space. Here, four zones – stairs, hall, living and dining spaces – are pulled together by a luxe grey velvet pile, echoed by accessories in cloud-soft shades.
Relaxed white living room
A 'tile' rug is a stunning centrepiece, nicely framed by the corner sofa. The shades of grey, black and white are ultimately modern colours, but mixed with patterns and texture, they give this living room a casual, relaxed air.
Living room fireplace
A living room fire, with grey slate surrounding, brings a warm and inviting feel to this living room. The blue and green painting above is a perfect contrast to the cool tones of the slate, lifting the look instantly.
Soft blue living room
The focal point of this living room is the large black and white framed print, set against chalk grey walls for added impact. The yellow sofa and rug are an unlikely compliment to the blue, but matched together, they highlight the richness of both.
Hand-painted living room lamp
A hand-painted lampshade adds instant personalised charm to this living room. The soft grey shades and midnight blue keep it contemporary.
Living room with blue sofa
A vibrant piece of furniture is an easy way to add colour to a white room. Reflect this tone around the room with artwork and accessories.
