Sitting Rooms

The living 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 lounge 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.

Another Day In Paradise

Lucinda has made her tropical sitting room highly practical, without having to compromise on style. The slatted walls have been painted an off-white to keep the house cool whilst plantation shutters ensure that the amount of light creeping into the room can be adjusted. The most beautiful shades of green and purple mesh with warm oak furniture to bring more natural touches to the look. A Gothic Renaissance-style console table and tall plants create magnificent shapes and shadows.


La Dolce Vita

The sitting room features ornate gilded furniture and accessories inspired by 1950s décor. Bold printed cushions elevate a neutral L-shaped sofa, and, when paired with matching curtains and a striking modern print, bring the space together. Recurring geometric motifs appear throughout this scheme to create contrast and draw the eye, from circles (the mirror, side table and door handles on the art deco-style sideboard) to squares (the lamp, coffee table and contemporary rug).

Off The Beaten Track

The walls of this sitting room were painted a soft, muted neutral colour, but in the end Sue decided that it needed a bit of zing, so a red line was painted around the room at chest height. Pictures were hung in a line above, as a focus for the eye. The space reflects an appreciation for eastern and western design, French urns, an oriental-inspired coffee table and a vase bursting with peonies drown it in beauty and make it a place suitable for entertaining.


Riverside Residence

In this beautiful sitting room with a view overlooking the Thames, Lucinda uses lots of metals to mirror the modern setting. Bright colours and patterns add warmth to the space, and the crittall window gives the room a modern edge. A focal point is the corner sofa which provides a layer of comfort to this traditional sitting room.


The Dark Side

Large bay windows allow plenty of light into the sitting room, making the living area look atmospheric rather than overcast. Colourful cushions punctuate the ink-blue surroundings in Sue’s ‘Dark Side’ sitting room. The oriental influences, featured across every room in the townhouse, are evident; a beautiful coffee table with a lattice pattern catches the eye of the viewer.

Sea House

The Sea House sitting room is minimal and stripped back, allowing it to breathe and exist as a comfortable open space with sumptuous seating and cushions. Texture is added to this space in the form of characterful coastal ornaments on the coffee table and decorative plates on the wall. Two perfectly placed swivel armchairs provide a spot where you can sit back and admire the view.


Park Life

Rugs and curtains were deliberately excluded from the sitting room, so as not to detract from the house’s features and to give the room space to breathe. The elegant neutral backdrop is achieved using a combination of grey textiles, neutral upholstery and rustic wooden table, whilst mirrored pieces reflect the natural light pouring in through the vast windows to create a bright yet tranquil sitting room.


Feng Sue

Soothing blues and vibrant reds add balance to this sitting room. The colour palette comes from an Indian-inspired throw and though it all goes together it does not match. The walls are adorned with mirrors and prints, which is quite a traditional way of decorating but adds so much character and warmth. A large coffee table is the focal point of the room.
