Mad Men actor and interior designer Bryan Batt featured this multicoloured living room in his recent design book Big, Easy Style. Black accents in the artwork, lamps and armchair fabric ground the cheerful colour scheme. "Modern art such as abstract expressionism, black and white photography or pop art is a great way to bring a cool factor to traditional surroundings," adds Austin.
