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.

In this striking sitting room, Sue seamlessly blends historical period architecture with contemporary living. Modern furniture and a trompe l’oeil mirror contrast beautifully with the brickwork and flagstone flooring. Her key pieces are punctuated with an eclectic mix of accessories which take you all over the world. Roman busts, vibrant orchids and silk cushions adorned with Japanese patterns work together to convey the element of travel integral to her look.

When Annabel created this sitting room, she wanted to play with colour, in the same way that Nancy liked to. She chose a bold green and then mixed in traditional and contemporary elements. Annabel borrowed inspiration from different design periods, pairing classical paintings with Chinoiserie-style pieces and a rather sleek corner sofa.

There’s lots to see in this ambiently lit sitting room, yet it still feels peaceful and relaxing. Pale-toned furniture and lamps harmonise with the softly coloured walls and carpet, allowing the scattering of accessories to pop. The faux olive trees and nature-inspired botanical prints pay tribute to the picturesque gardens right on the doorstep of this period home. To finish the look, Lucinda included several cushions she designed, which are adorned with prints inspired by Indian floral patterns.

After a long day hiking in the surrounding hills, this sitting room is the perfect oasis to return to. The foundation of Sue’s design was the walls which were painted to create a plastered effect, adding texture and depth as well as making the rooms feel cooler during the scorching Californian summers. Pops of colour were carefully chosen in complementing tones to make the scheme feel welcoming.

The courtyard garden transforms into an extra room during spring and summer, where the owners can enjoy everything from sunbathing to stargazing, meaning this central London home actually has two sitting areas. For the main sitting room, Lucinda decorated with natural materials, such as rattan and wood, then added pops of white to open up the scheme and create a calming atmosphere. Accessories could be used in abundance, because of the natural colours chosen.

Matching the rest of the house, the master bedroom features a unique pastel colour palette and draws on the outdoors; here Annabel used delicate shades of pink and purple as her base, then added floral pictures and a giant faux orchid. The curved silhouettes of the lamp, armchair and dressing table in combination with subtly printed textiles create a look that is delightfully feminine.

Having a sense of balance is key for a harmonious space and this was particularly important to Bruce when decorating this sitting room. He created a focal point with the large sofa and the yacht print that sits above it, then used matching armchairs, side tables and lamps as a frame. Another consideration here was the seasonality of Lake Geneva, with balmy summers and icy winters, the sitting room in particular had to work all year round; the hints of gold and bronze across the room subtly warm it up without compromising the refined feel.

This elegant apartment overlooks the heart of London; the view from the sitting room is truly stunning. Our Savile Modular Sofa fits the space perfectly and the cushions are ideal for autumn but can easily be changed with the seasons. A few gold accents here and there add a dash of opulence.
