A bit of quirkiness never hurt anyone, so go on and include a bit of charisma and charm with a dramatic colour scheme and some industrial accents.

5. Eclectic

There's nothing more eclectic than contrast, whether it be a fantastic monochrome rug or floral print sofa, this living room is just fascinating.

6. Minimal

Opt for minimal features in your living room if you prefer clean, modern lines and simplicity.

7. Neutral

Or how about some neutral colours for a cosy effect. There's nothing more warm and welcoming on a bitter winter evening, especially with a fireplace at your side.

8. Petite
