What Houzz contributors are saying:
Lose the yearsIf you’re concerned the artwork you want in a room tends to the traditional side, leaning it can give it a contemporary twist that makes it look just right in the scheme.In this bedroom, it’s two portraits that have been given the treatment. A slight overlap of the smaller painting onto the larger one also contributes to the modern feel. Meanwhile, the oval painting above has been hung on the wall at a level low enough to associate it with the propped pair, so the whole reads like one. A few books in front complete the pleasing group.Should you ever display books with their spines facing the wall?
Goodbye Scandi, hello luxe“I think 2018 will see, if not the death of Scandi, at least it being forced to make room for a new sense of luxe and opulence that’s coming through in interiors now. “When the world outside is uncertain, we all want to come home to somewhere cosy, comfortable and safe. So I think there will be a gradual softening of those clean Scandinavian lines and sense of minimalism, for a look that’s more colourful, more luxe and more cocooning. Think velvets and textiles in jewel tones that edge towards a more maximalist feel.”Kate Watson-Smyth, Mad About the House
Adopt traditionDeep red velvet curtains are a classic and, in these period surroundings, they definitely look the part. How to pull off this room’s successful avoidance of quaintness? Let the curtains drape unfussily – pelmets and formal headings are out. Adding in areas of fresh, clean white, like this room’s painted floorboards and bed linen, also helps to keep things modern. Check out the paintings, too. Propping as well as hanging equals relaxed 21st century style.
