Does your living room have an awkward setback or quirky corner that’s tough to furnish? Turn it into an asset by adding a built-in desk to create a functional and attractive home office space. A built-in desk does not have to be complicated, expensive or even require a contractor to install it. You can make one desk yourself like the one above with a few basic items – a desktop, a few wall shelves and a drawer unit.
Contrast too, is a good way to bring out a blue. "Generally speaking, blue loves contrast," agrees Amy. The sharp juxtapositioning of cobalt paintwork with white trim and architraves is a classic. "Think neutrals like white tones and oatmeal, or richer colours such as mustard," she advises. Opposite shades on the colour wheel such as raspberry reds and corals can look terrific with shades of blue too, depending on your scheme.
Wicker baskets are an economical and elegant way to add storage to any room. Baskets can be used to store and display books, architectural and decor magazines, toys, towels and blankets to name a few. Place a couple of small wicker baskets on the counter-tops in your kitchen to beautifully display and store your fruit and vegetables.
