If you want to create timeless glamour, then this is the trend for you. The palest of greys, creams and natural wood with a flamboyant sofa, touches of gold, copper and chrome are how to make it happen, working just as well with a neutral carpet as it does with stone or light wood flooring.
Monochrome and orange
For a fresh contemporary look, try black and white mixed with light grey walls and pops of bright orange. Keep the scheme modern with geometric patterns and add panelling-effect walls to tie-in well with the linear designs. Simple accessories and natural flooring complete the look.
Grey with green
Pale lime with soft charcoal grey creates a calming space. If this room had plain cream or white walls the look would be colder, but the lime adds warmth and will reflect sunlight, too.
