It was important to the couple that the seating be focused around talking to one another, rather than looking at the TV, so ‘we placed the sofa along the long wall and the armchairs either side of the fireplace. The neutral backdrop needed a spot of colour to really bring it to life. ‘The bold colour has refreshed the room, and we are so happy with how the space has turned out.’

‘I wanted to decorate the room with subtle greys and soft textures to create a calm, neutral feel.’ By using a soft colour palette on the largest surfaces – walls and cabinetry – the couple gave the space a serene feeling. Accents that attribute similar shades, such as the upholstered chair and deep-pile rug – help to pull the look together.

A 1950s gas fire was substituted with a reclaimed fireplace that equalled the house’s age. This helped make the room feel more homely. ‘We pick a reclaimed fireplace as the particular is much sharper than reproduction models. The pastel blue tulip tiles in the fire enclose match the walls also stained glass in the windows.’

Before the transformation

We needed a cosy, elegant, grown-up space we could use for entertaining. This led the couple to insert insulation under the floor, as well as replace the 1950s gas fire with one that would match the style of the house.

The living room was the first area to be renovated – ‘We wanted a place to retreat to when the rest of the house was still such a state.’ says the homeowner, Christine, who blogs at LittleHouseOnTheCorner.com.

Dressing a mid-century chair with quirky accessories gives it a contemporary look that matches the scheme in the rest of the room. Co-ordinating shining accessories, such as the yellow radio and a yellow throw, add a pop of colour that give the room some added pizazz.

Old meets new

From neglected shell to vibrant entertaining area, this project is living proof that a defined shade palette and a bit of confidence can go a long way.
