Think rustic. and you might imagine a wooden ski lodge or historic. half-timbered home. Rustic design doesn't have to involve chunky. dark timber. thick lines or even a roaring fire. Keeping weathered wood. hand-stitched fabrics and a cosy frame in mind. rustic designs create a feeling of warmth and love. evoking the phrase 'the home is where the heart is'. Re-use old furniture. rummage around the antiques in your local market and avoid the over-polished look.
Keep it mellow with beiges and greys. centring your room with a light pendant or three.Design your lounge in the rustic farmhouse style. Using a base colour palette of white paint and wood. construct a crockery cabinet with intricate edges. Upholster your couch in gingham. scattering patterns across your lounge in chair upholstery. cushions. rugs and throws.
Grey can work with warmer colouring. This autumnal living room creates heat with an olive green feature wall and terracotta cushioning. as grey softens the scene with an L-seater couch. woollen rug and TV panel. A roaring fire. wood stack and two Chinese lanterns make it homely.Create a contemporary tribal look using white. green and grey. Mid-grey walls pair with a circular charcoal art piece. grey-wooden table and stretching hover lamp.
Like your lounge clean and spacious? Keep it tidy with grey inset shelving. a woollen rug and leather L-seater beside exposed brick. A yellow and grey abstract adds creative edge.Create contemporary drama with a living room in grey. The bold contrasts between the almost-black side wall and pendants. the light grey couch and kitchen appears almost monochrome in this design. A deep berry chair and resonating artwork avoid a clash in themes.
