Take colour inspiration for the hardest-working room in your house from our interior trends for 2021: modern country, vintage glamour and mid-century bold

Choose clotted cream and blue for a modern country living room

Our modern country trend combines furniture in shades of cream with cushions in multiple blue hues, from duck egg to navy. A neutral-coloured sofa from our Nantucket range takes centre stage, while a cream painted wooden coffee table and side table from our contemporary-meets-traditional Padstow collection provide extra surfaces and storage. Lots of patterned and plain cushions in various shades of blue bring colour and texture to the scheme, creating a considered but casual look. A tactile rug and house plants add warmth and a welcoming feel.

Add vintage glamour to your living room with blush pink and shades of grey

A palette of soft grey and blush pink sets the tone for the vintage glamour trend, which also features glass, mirrored and marble-effect accents. The starting point is an elegant sofa from our Preston range in luxurious grey velvet alongside a marble-effect coffee table and a matching nest of marble-effect side tables. Colour comes from blush pink geometric jacquard velvet cushions and blush pink cushions with a hummingbird illustration arranged in symmetrical pairs. With its ribbed glass shade, the Florence floor lamp fits the timeless feel, while a sunburst mirror would amp up the glamour.

Emerald green and mustard yellow create a bold mid-century living room scheme

Our mid-century bold trend combines opulent emerald velvet with ochre cushions and pale wood and glass furniture. Flipping the usual approach of neutral sofa and colourful accents on its head, this scheme makes a bold emerald-coloured sofa from our Felix collection the focal point of the living room, while the pale oak and glass coffee table and pale oak side table – which can also be used as a stool – complement rather than compete. Geometric patterned cushions in shades of ochre, cream and grey add to the overall look that gives mid-century style a contemporary feel.
