Contemporary EclecticTransitional Living Room, London

The alcoves in the living space work hard, making this side of the apartment extremely family-friendly. Two sideboards provide ample storage, concealing tech and leads and storing toys or DVDs. Above, useful shelves stand out against bold black walls and create display space for treasured finds, books and photos, ensuring this contemporary scheme feels personal, too. The huge pendant light is a playful touch that children will love and its shape is echoed by the round mirror which, just like its black counterpart in the dining area, hangs above an understated and gorgeous contemporary fireplace.

Classic living room in London with white walls, a standard fireplace, a freestanding tv and beige floors. —  Houzz

Freshen up the fireplaceIf you have the luxury of a real fireplace, you’ll be well aware of the dust and mess it creates. As spring arrives and you’re using the fire less, think about how you store fuel, both inside and out. A log basket and small bucket for kindling and matches can help keep these items tidy indoors. And a well-organised log stack outside will help to keep you happy on a wet windy night next winter – so invest the time now while you remember! To prepare for spring – re-imagine your fire as a backdrop to some lush plants, or maybe add some twinkly fairy lights to brighten up the fireplace without the need to light a fire. Don’t forget the chimney, and book your annual appointment with the chimney sweep.How do you organise your home in the spring? Share your ideas in the Comments below.

Round mirrors “Last year, there were lots of marvellous mirrors, from the popular window arch shape to quatrefoil and sunburst designs, but I think the oversized round mirror (with thin frame) is the most neutral and timeless. I think we’ll see it in many design schemes in 2017.”Lotte Brouwer

Use your fireplace for displayIt’s surprising how much less busy a room feels if you can place any items sitting around the base of your fireplace inside it. Simply clearing the firebox, then arranging your items flush to the surround is far more pleasing to the eye – and the accident-prone.

Kate Burt added this to Ask an Expert: What’s the Best Style of Shutter For My Windows?26 October 2015

Professional installationShutters are a significant investment, argues Lucas, so, when it comes to choosing the best style and fitting option, use a professional who will consider the architecture of the window and give you the benefit of their advice. ‘There are lots of options on how you have your shutters designed,’ he explains. ‘A professional will help you take into account the design of the window – for example, shutter panels should reflect the glazing, so if you have three panes, the shutters will look more balanced if they also have three panels.’ A professional will also take precise measurements to ensure a perfect fit and then return to install. ‘It is really important they’re fitted properly,’ adds Lucas. ‘If there is a gap around the shutters then they won’t provide adequate insulation.’
