A compact living room

Give your small living room a colourful makeover with a bold striped wallpaper, patterned rug, vibrant pouffes and bright, Indian accessories

If there's one decor maxim we don't subscribe to, it is "smaller the room, fewer the colours." It wouldn't be too wrong to say we love a big personality, even for our home. So, think bold colours, lots of patterns, textures and the works. And if you agree, then here's how you can start too. First of all, the backdrop. Work with a striking, striped wallpaper with a few colourful prints. We think symmetry is the key to getting your layout right in a small living room. A large two seater sofa in a neutral shade complemented with two pouffes with quirky prints for extra seating; centre table that doubles up as a storage unit and a sleek side table to hold knick-knacks. Don't worry about too much colour or too many patterns, sometimes more is delightful.
