Living for Comfort




The popularity of the minimalist look


The popularity of the minimalist look in home decor has never really faded, and it has returned with some new twists this year, reflecting the current interest in colour and in luxurious furnishings. The fashion for club chairs and sofas has hit the high street, together with the discovery that leather sofas offer a great focal point for the living room, as well as adding a touch of luxury and comfort. The range of  leather sofas at Next offer contemporary styling in the traditional colours of tan and Havana brown, as well as a gorgeous deep-cream. (Not for those with young families!) The sofas themselves create a natural focal point of comfort and luxury in any living room, and lend themselves to a minimalist environment, with the predominant colours being creams, greys and browns.

Living rooms sofas


Many living rooms in today's homes double up as part-time offices, and open plan ground floors often combine living room and kitchen-dining rooms. In contrast to the neutral tones still popular with many, colour is key this season in helping to create a clear divide between the different areas, with pastels combined with neon bright giving warmth and interest to living space. Using rugs in primary coloured stripes to create a touch of colour in front of a fireplace, bold patterned scatter cushions on a neutrally coloured sofa and breaking convention by mixing patterns and contrasting colours, are all approaches

that have helped to transform interiors this year.




The description of "living room" is not accidental - it tends to be for most people quite literally the room that they spend most of their waking hours in - watching television, spending time with the family, reading, playing on games consoles. Any review of your living room decor and furnishings needs to take into account the use that its gets, as well as the size, shape and aspect. (South-facing windows will provide more natural light). Attempting a minimalist look when you have a young family who delight in strewing their toys around the living room is likely to need a different approach to the design of the living room. 


The trend this season towards a daring variety in furnishings, mixing styles and shapes, patterns and colours, can provide the ideal answer.
