As Styled By You: Living Room

The living room is often the life and soul of a home. It’s the perfect place to relax and have a cup of tea, put your feet up and watch TV or it can be a communal space when you have friends and family over.

Regardless of whether you want to go for a sleek and elegant look, or you favour a more eclectic and colourful style, you’ll want to create a warm and cosy environment to make you and your guests feel welcome. Take a look at how our customers use their favourite Oak Furnitureland pieces to fill their home and create homely, yet stylish, living spaces.

Pops of Colour

@liamhig8 knows how to make his armchair pop, pairing yellows and mosaic patterns against the charcoal grey of his Jasmine armchair.

This living room design is a perfect example of less is more. The dark grey against the clean white walls, paired with the simple white wall mirror gives the room an elegant feel.

Grey corner sofa with yellow accessories

We love how @bethany_and_lees_first_home has styled the Morgan sofa with hints of colour and plenty of texture. Mustard accessories add contrast against a grey backdrop and soft textured cushions and throw help keep this living room look feel warm and inviting. To finish off the room Bethany, has chosen our Albani wall clock to add an element of grandeur to her living room. Leaving the rest of the wall blank, she provides a perfect example of how a statement piece is often all you need for your wall decoration.

Shades of grey

Silver chair and matching footstool

Get creative with accessories and find clashing patterns to adorn your cushions, adding visual interest to your sofa set. @kandyhomesweethome has chosen our Gainsborough sofa and footstool and added a great selection of cushions in a variety of shapes and styles. Achieve this look by sticking to a minimal colour palette for your living room decorations and add contrast with patterns or plants.

Dylan three seater sofa

There’s nothing like pairing light colours with a large window to really open up a room as demonstrated by @housetohome28. The perfectly placed compliments the neutral shades of grey, combining modern interior furniture with the floral beauty of nature. The light colours of the living room allow our Dylan sofa to be the main attraction of the room without stealing all the attention.

Mango oak coffee table and grey sofa

A natural palette is timeless, making it a popular choice for home styling. Greys and creams work wonders with the natural brown of our Mantis Light coffee table. Kelly, @holcombehouse, fills her living room with pillows to create a cosy ambience. The fireplace perfectly contributes to the warm feel of the living room, tying the whole place together as an inviting and snug space to relax.

Warm Neutrals

Grey sofa and matching footstool

We just can’t get enough of these neutral tones, yet another one of our customers has combined the mixed hues of our Mantis Light collection with greys and browns to create an inviting and peaceful ambience for their living room. The classic wooden flooring paired with wooden cabinets and wall clock perfectly showcase the beauty of using natural materials. Our Nebraska corner sofa and footstool fit perfectly in this living room and really exemplify how you can make the most of the space you have.

Maximise your use of space and fill your living room with our Kemble collection. We love how @m1k3yx.x has filled our rustic oak display cabinet with his favourite books and DVD’s. The delicate hue of the painted oak brightens the room and works exquisitely with the brick fireplace. The variety of textures, from the sleek leather sofas to the shaggy rug give a layered depth to the senses.

@ourroseberryhome uses a piece from our Kemble collection to fill the corner of her living room. The rustic colours of the sideboard go perfectly with the earthy hues of the vase and the brass colour of the rabbit statue. The addition of the plant adds a burst of colour against the surrounding browns bringing the sideboard and all of its surroundings together.

Eclectic Styling

Who says all your furniture needs to match? We love how Zoe, @homestylemother, has arranged her living room. Our oak sideboard from the Original Rustic range is nestled between furniture from a variety of styles with each piece adding its own bit of character to the room. The fairy lights and full bookshelves contribute to the warm and busy atmosphere giving the room a very homely feel.
