What Houzz contributors are saying:
Distract with patternPatterned cushions add instant interest, but for a double dose of disguise, deceive the eye into looking beyond the sofa with bold decoration. Here, a graphic design has been painted onto the wall behind the couch, but a high-impact wallpaper would have the same effect.Browse sofas in the Houzz Shop
Colour-blocking“For 2018, I predict we’ll see an increasing number of homes sporting the colour-block look. Bright, graphic neons and bold hues will prevail, often teamed with more pared-back pastels and muted tones. As the trend gathers pace, we’ll see more confident colour-block combinations, separated by clean, graphic, 80s-inspired lines.”Emily Murray, The Pink HouseAre you ready for the Houzz of 2018?

Make it multi-colouredWhy stop at one shade? When you’re not tackling every wall in a room you can perhaps afford to be bolder. Remember, it will really help your room décor to hang together if you pick up the wall colours elsewhere in the room – in this space, note the unifying effect of the table lamp, the chair and the cushions. If you’re tackling this sort of design, do invest in proper paint-blocking masking tape, which will ensure crisp edges to your paintwork.
