The royal blue sofa is very striking, while the large sofa creates more than enough space for cuddling, hosting friends and family or simply relaxing with a book.

In this living room, we can see how two green armchairs have been paired with a cream and brown sofa. These different colours work in harmony with one another, contrasting with the patterned rug.

The artwork is the star of this space, however, bringing in a sense of luxury to the home. The designers have hung up two pieces of artwork on the wall and a sculpture has been placed between the armchairs and the sofa.

In this design, we come across a very quaint and homely little living room that features soft, pastel tones. 

This soft colour palette works in harmony with the dark furniture that has been chosen for the coffee table and the side tables. 

What is striking about this space is how the wallpaper enhances the beauty and appeal of this room. It is the finishing touch on a very classic look and feel. Wallpaper is a wonderful and cost-effective way to introduce some patterns or even a theme into a room.
