Filled with pretty pastels and pops of colour, this year’s family living room in the Good Homes roomsets was a real show-stopper. From woven fabrics, rattan and luxurious velvet, the combination of textures in this room create added interest, and placed amongst the quirky but unique decor makes for a more contemporary look. Kate McPhee and Jess Taverner did a great job in making a stunning roomset at the Ideal Home Show this year.

I loved how the living room was both a multi-functional and a beautiful space. It was exactly how I wanted my home to feel – if only the talented Good Homes Magazine teams could come home with me and help! Colours and soft furnishings were layered to add texture and dimension to the space. Somehow, the beautiful peachy velvet of our Sydney accent chair acted like a grounding neutral in the room, tying in with the gorgeous and space-saving wall desk and subtle artwork. The Gainsborough sofa, with its assortment of touchable fabric pillows seemed the perfect place to curl up with a cup of tea in front of the open fire!

An artisan space adorned with detail, you could stare at this room for ages and still keep finding new things to look at! Initially it’s the colours that are most striking – a combination of soft peaches, oranges, yellows and beige – however when you start to look further your eye doesn’t know where to look first! The two dominant pieces of furniture are the Gainsborough sofa in a beautiful textured weave which anchors the room and then the bright orange velvet Sydney chair which is a showstopper in itself!
The walls are decorated with interesting pictures and I really liked the workspace at the back of the room. Anyone that works from home knows how important it is to have some designated space and this roomset really showed how that could work, without needing a full room for an office, which isn’t always possible in today’s smaller living spaces.
One item that I did really love was the curved cabinet at the left-hand side of the room – sliding green fabric doors means you can either have things out on display or if you’re more untidy like me, close it up and hide everything away and still look like you have a stylish living room!
