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.

With a background like this, everything gleams: the velvet cushions appear jewel-like and the gold feathers shimmer. Each element has been carefully considered –small details like the door handles and curtains complement the colour scheme whilst the orange cushionand tulip prints pay homage to the Dutch Masters.

Sue showcased different woods in the sitting room, such as recycled pine, elm, oak and beech, to introduce texture without impacting the palette chosen especially for the look. Not everything had to match – it was more important to get the colour and texture right, hence different side tables feature. Multiple accessories decorate the space, but they aren’t all grouped, allowing your eye to spend time on each one.


Second Nature

Lucinda's sitting room is a collage of design styles: a classic English sofa and deep-buttoned ottoman chime with accessories that hint at Asian art. The geometric, gold-framed furniture sharpens the look and brings balance, along with the pair of lamps and set of prints, resulting in a space that feels calm and relaxed.


Calm & Collected

The keyhole mirror, marble fireplace and patterned rug permeate the sitting room with classic flair whereas an asymmetric layout gives it a lived-in vibe. The soft colours and natural light draw you in, encouraging you to curl up on the sofa with one of the room's many coffee table books.

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 Loched Hut

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.


Castilian Character

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.


Après Dark

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.
