Luxury living room To create luxury in your living room, use mother-of-pearl accessories from Emily Readett-Bayley, contrasted with a dark-wood side table. Choose a neutral background with soft furnishings and sofa from Laura Ashley; these contrast beautifully with oatmeal-linen curtains, accessorised with pale mohair throws and silk cushions.

Create a calming, restful scheme with a palette of soft pastels. Co-ordinate your upholstery in tonal pastel shades; try a sofa, chair and footstool in a mix of grey, pale blue and shell pink, then add cushions and throws in matching shades. Line shelves with pretty pastel accessories, as rows of books in sugary tones will complement the scheme.
