The texture of your cushion is up to you but don’t be afraid to get creative and see what you can come up with. If you want, you can match your cushions to your curtains or throws but we do recommend having one bold burst of colour rather than having too much in the one room.
There are a variety of flooring options available for a living room. While floorboards have a warming effect and suit virtually any style, maintenance tends to be higher. To ensure your floorboards always look uniform, it is essential to re-stain and polish them to ensure any major dents or scratches don’t become permanent. Carpet on the other hand can be replaced easily, and is better suited to climates where the winters and long and cold.
