Bright & Playful Living Room

Bright colours and pattern look sophisticated when paired with on-trend neutrals.

Yellow drapes with a box-pleat valance and patterned wallpaper combine for a polished tone-on-tone effect in Victoria Webster's living room. The sofa, carpet and trim in pale grey balance the graphic impact of the yellow wallpaper without stealing its thunder.
