Area rugs and accent pillows are a great way to add a touch of texture. Combine a few different textures to give the room character but try not to combine too many varieties as it can be tiresome to your guests eyes (not to mention, take you off your intended look/tone/feel for the room).

If you have a bit more space to play with, bring the furniture away from the walls to create a cosy sitting area. This works especially well in open-plan living spaces, helping to zone the relaxation area from the thoroughfares or dining, cooking and study areas.

In this mid-century modern room, the old-fashioned ceiling fans fit right in.

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.

In order to make the most of the high ceiling consider a large central fixture in a take-notice style.
