Sitting Rooms

The sitting room is where we catch up over coffee, watch our favourite TV shows after work and host a cocktail party or two, so – seeing as we spend so much time in this room - it’s important to choose sitting room decoration that will stand the test of time. Here are a few sitting room ideas to get the ball rolling and assist you in selecting a comfortable sofa, statement coffee table and unique table lamps to create a space worth showing off.

Take To The Hills

It was important to keep the sitting room cool in a warm climate, so Sue stuck to a mainly neutral palette but included a few darker tones, which come through in the cushions, lampshades and tables. The spectacular tree, the core of the room, introduces drama and a natural element.

The Angel of Islington

The sitting room was a real opportunity to add colour. Lucinda used bold red, charcoal and gold accessories on the neutral palette, including a bright rug, ottoman, armchairs and lamps. Rather than furnishing her small sitting room with small furniture, she used a large corner sofa to maximise space and create an entertaining area.

The Coast is Clear

In this sitting room, the view takes centre stage, framed by two, striking, classical pillars, the symmetry of which dictates the rest of the design. Pairs of armchairs, sofas, cushions and lamps create a cohesive look, inviting you to sit down and take in the tranquil surroundings. In homage to the landscape, we used a nautical palette of blues and naturals, and added a touch of glamour with intricate shell lamps and beaded cushions.

Loft and Found

A pared-back colour palette of browns and neutrals complements the architecture of the property and creates a sense of calm. Pops of rich charcoal, citrine and mustard, on luxurious materials, add depth and tie the room together. The loft is big and open plan, so it was key to introduce plenty of accessories to ensure that the space felt welcoming. Nature-inspired items, like faux coral, and natural textures, such as wood and rattan, provide the perfect antidote to the industrial aesthetic.

Isle Be Here

Sue’s sitting room is as stunning as its view of the clear, blue Aegean Sea. The colours used in this look are evocative not only of Santorini’s azure waters and sandy beaches, but also its pretty Cycladic houses and blue-domed churches. Full of comfortable places to sit, this light and airy living area is exactly where you want to be after a day exploring the island’s labyrinth of narrow, sun-drenched streets.

The Loched Hut

This colourful yet restful room enjoys breath-taking views of the loch and the incredible mountains that frame it. Blue accents, along with natural wooden furniture, nod to this tranquil setting; the blue and red colour palette also makes the space look more sophisticated and together. Storage was a problem in the hut, so Lucinda introduced side tables with drawers and a large ottoman that doubles as a coffee table.

Castilian Character

Seeing as Toledo is a place rich in history and culture, it made sense to decorate the sitting room with ornaments and lamps that resemble treasured relics. Gold accessories also feature, to bring opulence to the space, along with a statement mirror and textiles in warm hues.

Après Dark

Natural materials feature heavily throughout the chalet sitting room to reinforce the connection to the mountain landscape, but also show how simple pieces can still have an impact. Different tones and textures of wood help to create depth and interest, whether in the form of abstract art on the walls or a coffee table centrepiece. Flashes of green are used sparingly throughout this monochrome scheme, as a nod to the forest beyond.
