A colourful Indian sitting room

Play with colourful prints, potted greens and ceramic accessories for a charming sitting room

We don't necessarily align with decor rules. For instance using print on print. We love this bold, in your face, confident look. Excited? Then let's start with wallpaper as the starting point of this makeover. Place a solid coloured sofa against it and pile on bold, print-heavy cushions to complete the central look. Play with different materials and textures to heighten the drama, in this case, soft linens with heavy embroidery, warm woods with shiny metal. Keep accessories as simple and as pared down as possible – a lean, brass floor lamp, ceramic tabletop accessories, straight lined wooden furniture and a few potted plants will help you tie in the look. Sit back and relax in a space that’s as vibrant as you.
