It’s the space where we relax, put up our feet and unwind, so why settle for anything less than the best?

Here are our tips to ensure that the interior design of your living room is the best it can be.

Accents of colour 

Bring life in to your living room by adding splashes of colour through pillows and throws.  

If you have a neutral room, bright accessories will create a striking contrast.

Reflect your style

Carefully positioning a mirror in your living room can add depth and character, while reflecting natural light around the space.

Take time to find a mirror which matches the style of your living room - Mirror World offer a range of large fitted mirrors.

If you prefer free-standing accessories, try this stylish standing Château Chic Mirror from Wayfair.

Select your centrepiece

Living rooms are intimate hubs, designed for comfort - so choose your furniture and build the look of your room around that.

You could choose a corner sofa to be the centrepiece of your living room, or go for an elegant coffee table like these ones from John Lewis.

Artistic flair 

An eye-catching artwork can help to add character to a room.

John Lewis offers a range of prints and canvases including animals, abstract and figurative paintings.

But if oil paintings are more up your street then head to Spitalfields Arts Market, by the Barbican, where you'll find a mix of affordable art by up and coming and established artists.

Bring the outdoors inside

Indoor plants can breathe a breath of fresh air into the ambience of your living room.

With spring on the horizon, try this sophisticated indoor orchid plant from M&S to add a floral touch to your living space.
