"No-colour rooms are hard to pull off without them appearing chilly or malnourished," notes The Aesthete — anonymous author of the now-defunct Aesthete's Lament blog. "But this mid-1980s living room by interior designer Mark Hampton, in cream and oyster, is rich, sparkling, and warm. Those wonderful orange Mark Rothko paintings shine down like twin sunsets, and the flowery Axminster carpet acts like a garden rolled out under the painted Georgian furniture."
