Album description:



We were recently on ITV's house gift as the Christmas special. Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen said he wanted to inject some colour into our home but we chose a wooden chest of drawers which we loved but which definitely didn't bring colour in! But we agree that our living room needs an injection of colour and we have no idea what colours. As I said on the programme, I love jewel colours but I'm not sure how they will go with the magnolia walls and brown leather sofas. We don't have time to redecorate with our one year old son taking up all of our spare time and the fact we both work in very stressful jobs and there is no money for new sofas. So we're thinking that instead we'll buy a new rug, new cushions and new curtains and introduce colour in the textiles but we have no idea where to start and whether jewel colours will look good and if they wouldn't, what colours would look good. Any advice, inspiration, photos would be appreciated.

Hi Cavakate,
I think a bit of colour injection would really light up your living room. A Turquoise, dark orange (almost red), green or even dark pink or red would be nice with the brown sofa.
I would quite like to add a piece of furniture with a bit of colour maybe a vintage suitcase coffee table with bright coloured legs (don’t have a good picture of one with colourful legs) http://www.etsy.com/listing/53067133/end-table-or-coffee-table-repurposed?ref=sr_gallery_10&ga_search_query=coffee+table&ga_search_type=category&category=furniture.table&ga_page=&order=&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title I prefer a leather suitcase http://www.wecknerdesign.com/tables/1010/vintage-suitcase-coffee-table/ Or maybe just a normal coffee table in a nice colour or a colourful sideboard to put the TV on.
Or a large fabric on a wall would be nice maybe Josef Frank style http://www.svenskttenn.se/en-us/products/0133/textile/fabric/josef-frank.aspx. Josef Frank fabrics are quite expensive though, Marimekko also has nice colourful fabrics http://www.marimekko.com/products/interior-decoration/fabrics. One of my favourites is a Swedish Designed fabric The Hunt designed by Ulla Bodin which I use a lot http://www.wecknerdesign.com/seating/1001/scandinavian-retro-teak-chairs/ the blue background will bring out the brown in your sofa nicely.
Good luck,
Cheers,
Lina
