Whether you want to freshen up a house you have lived in for years or you’ve just moved somewhere new, it’s always important to make your living space somewhere you love to be.
We think the perfect balance is comfort and style in equal measures. This is where the Scandinavian & Nordic style works best. It’s sleek, stylish but has a comforting wood cabin feel. It can make any living room feel cosy and inviting as well as clean and fresh.
This room is an important one for any household, it’s where many of us spend a lot of our time. Whether it be quiet time with a good book, catching up with family and friends or putting your feet up and watching your favourite programmes on TV. Comfort and style is key.

A good sofa can really tie the room together. It’s an item most wouldn’t want to replace often so we recommend going for basic block colours, typically a colour that works with many different styles and colours. Grey is very versatile and in style right now as well as browns, beige and white. We love these Scandinavian and Nordic styles below.

Splashes Of Colour
Accessories like throw cushions, blankets, vases and rugs can add a much needed splash of colour. The beauty of this is that you can change the colour scheme with minimal cost, no need for new furniture or a lick of paint on the walls.
One of our favourite colour combinations is yellow on grey. It adds a little sunshine to the room.

These Morso River Vases would look great with some sunflowers to really make the room pop!
Another great fixture for any living room, to add something a little extra, is a good wood burning stove. Not only economical but also the best alternative for a more sustainable heating source. We have a wide selection of stoves and whether you want a more traditional look or something more stylish we have something for everyone.
Here are our top two picks. One with a modern twist and the other adopting a more traditional style.
Vases, candles, lamps and potted plants. This part is always our favourite part when finishing off a room. We have a great collection of vases. They’re unique and look great with fresh or dried flowers or thistles.
These little tealights are also a great addition to window sills or a side table.
We often enjoy searching for interior design ideas and these little free spaces in the living room can be filled with a vintage sideboard with a vase or a plant, maybe some antiques you’ve been hiding away. These final little touches are what makes a house a home.
