    The rug is possibly from a rug designer company such as The Rug Company - something like this could also however be custom made.

    From Sanderson, check they still produce this - try papers and paints if not and they can often reproduce.

        Peacock blueWhile they might not seem obvious bedfellows, grey and blue can actually nicely complement each other if chosen wisely, as illustrated here. Pick a jewel shade – sapphire, teal or turquoise, for instance – rather than a duller airforce or very pale blue, so it shines against the grey. Velvet in a rich blue shade will look wonderful next to matt grey, as the sheen on the fabric will reflect the light and add a ripple of glamour.Tell us…Which colour would you pair with grey?

        Use blue as a neutralLong gone are the days when beige and off-white were the only useful neutrals for your interiors scheme. Here, a dark blue sofa becomes a chic ‘new neutral’ and is used to ground a wider palette of red, peppermint green and yellow.The eclectic vibe is enhanced by the shelves of propped-up pictures, the brass-legged side table and the industrial-style coffee table.

        Inject colourIntroducing colour with a few choice pieces will elevate your home immediately from run-of-the-mill to inspirational. In this eclectic living room, the warm grey backdrop is transformed with hits of bright yellow, jewel-like blue and rich red. If you’re not sure which colours to use, try using your pictures as a jumping-off point, pulling out your favourite colours and tones.

        Bring out other coloursIn an eclectic look, the right rug can make a room’s colour palette sing. Here, a geometric pattern in a strong shade of red injects just the right amount of formality. It also sets off the strong blue and yellow tones to mouthwatering effect. Far from being overwhelming, the room is warm, inviting and relaxed.

        Pair with greyIf you’re not ready to go for a ‘blue out’ in your space, but still want the depth and cosiness of darker walls, grey could be the perfect alternative. The darker the grey you choose, the brighter your blue will appear. Although there are a number of strong colours here – the deep red in the rug, the egg-yolk yellow of the lamps and the minty green in the cushions – the arrangement doesn’t feel chaotic. This is thanks to the clever use of symmetry and because the gallery wall is broadly monochrome, so it doesn’t introduce more shades, which could compete in the space.

        Create a gallery wall without hanging a pictureA shelf of photos and pictures can look stunning, and is a great way to be flexible with your artwork. It allows you to move things around and, if you fancy a change, it’s easy to swap pictures. Style the artwork by choosing a mixture of sizes, and overlap the frames to give an informal and spontaneous feel to the display.The narrow ledges here are ideal for this type of arrangement and replicate a gallery wall, but without the hooks.

        Parsons Gray {interior decoration + design} added this to 10 Essential Design Elements Every Home Should Have6 Dec 2016

        Display your personality with picturesWhether they are layered on shelves, as in this smart living room, hung on the walls or propped on tables, pictures add character and personality. The good news is that, with web-based galleries selling high-quality prints, this needn’t cost the earth. Try devising a gallery wall running up a staircase, or hang two, three or four smaller frames together to create more impact. Just don’t hang them too high – pictures look best when they are hung in relation to the people looking at them, not the room itself, so eye-level is best.

        The picture ledges are a great asset to a room. Gives you lots of options on sizes/ styles of frames to use plus means less holes in your walls.
