Allow the room space to breatheA living room on the smallish side will actually feel bigger if you don’t pack every single corner with furniture, fitted or otherwise. So if your clutter’s well under control, give yourself the luxury of an empty alcove – or use it for something tall and striking, like this floor lamp, to draw attention to the space.

Add warmthDeep greys are known for their cosy-making abilities and often a small room, or an already-light-starved space, can be given a new lease of life by embracing its cosy feel by using charcoal-y shades to emphasise it. Certain greys (with more blue in them) can be on the cool side (the more yellow in the mix, the warmer a grey will be). So a rug like this one, featuring stripes of blue, pinks and red, adds a large-scale shot of heat. Now it’s just about lighting that fire…

Flatweave rugsFlatweave has a robust, durable construction and subtly woven texture that provides a stylish alternative to pile carpet. “Flatweave creates a style of flooring that was popular in Britain before the rise of pile carpets in the early 19th century,” Roger explains. “Most rugs and runners were once made this way. “Unlike pile carpet, which has an even, uniform feel, like a perfectly manicured bowling green, flatweave has a texture that lends a unique character and personality to a floor,” Roger adds. “The disadvantage of flatweave is that animals such as cats can catch their claws in its woven texture.” Tell us… Where in your home do you use rugs?
