Black storage ottomans and side tables add a sleek silhouette to this red kitchen and living room. Don’t underestimate the power of graphic pillows to pump up a simple color scheme. Here, cherry blossom pillows keep a charcoal-gray sofa looking chic, not drab.
Electric Color Combo
Let your fun, funky spirit come out with an outrageous wall color. Just tame it with touches of black: a sleek picture frame and mismatched black chairs do the trick.
A room as cheery as this country dining room needs a place for the eye to rest — simple black dining chairs fit the bill without calling too much attention to themselves.
If you’re nervous about adding black to a room, start small by coating minor architectural details in black. The inside walls of a built-in and portions of the wall set apart by molding are ideal for these small touches.
Two Shades of Black
Mixing styles in black is a definite can-do. Here, a new-again damask print in black and white sits atop an antique black table. The shared colors pull them together for an elegant look.

Create a warming orange living room
By painting both the skirting and the walls in Tuscan Terracotta we give the room an increased feeling of height. By doing this the wall looks like it travels all the way to the floor, rather than being chopped off by a pale skirting.
Create a welcoming family hall way
Because life is for living we have used Roasted Red on the walls in Dulux Endurance Matt finish which is ten times tougher than conventional paint. This makes it easy to remove stubborn stains, perfect in a busy hallway like this. We’ve teamed that with Antique Satin on the tongue and Grove and painted the Table with Crazy Cream.
Create a light & airy space
Keep your look simple, crisp and understated like we have here by combining Pacific Breeze on the walls with Absolute White on the window frame and setting the room off beautifully is this ultra-modern chair.
Create a feminine pink bedroom
We have chosen two toning pinks for this exuberant yet feminine bedroom. Sexy Pink on the right creates a feature wall and is complemented beautifully with Sweet Pink on the back wall and Strawberries ‘n’ Cream on the window frames
Create a blue dressing room
For a very contemporary twist on a blue room, combine a soft blue such as First Dawn, with the cool grey quality of Illusion and Blue Chalk. Greys and blues look fabulous and work brilliantly in south facing rooms.

Modern luxury farmhouse design living room with blue decorated sofa, ottoman leather armchairs and fireplace.
When designing a modern farm, balconies, wide board floors and beautiful fireplaces are welcome. The plant can be central hall, living room side or a variation of both. Gathering places inside the house is as important today as they were 200 years ago.

Chocolate and Red Bedroom
A 19th-century Italian headboard, upholstered in Osborne & Little’s Tamara, is the centerpiece of this bedroom highlighted with chocolate, red, and a soft pink. Very romantic.

Splash of Red and White
Delightfully busy and engaging Jardin Chinois Red wallpaper from Waterhouse Wall-hangings masks the flaws of an awkwardly shaped powder room. The window shade is Cire red linen by Lee Jofa with Clarence House Greek Key tape. The perfect example of a bold use of red and white.

Red and White Bedroom
This red and white child’s bedroom is perfect for winter. The sophisticated red print is from Pierre Frey. A clever touch is Lee Jofa striped wallpaper — hung horizontally. Swing-arm lamps are from Phoenix Day. [Read more →]

Pink and white dining room, love the flowers and pink compote. Lots of pattern in a room calls for lots of shiny white reflective surfaces too – they bounce the light around and keep things contemporary. Mahina, Harlequin.
fabulous style, dark pink sofa and curtain, not so much lollipop as lipstick. Kalaya, Harlequin.
