Look Of The Year 2010

A bright sofa adds character to a traditional room.

A classic style living room — with white walls, moulding and an on-trend navy blue door — is given a relaxed spin with a chintz-covered sofa and a dramatic art installation. H&H loves this "traditional remix", and named this room the look of the year for 2010. To introduce a bold colour to an otherwise white room, try painting a door to bring in a nautical colour scheme without the dramatic effect of painting all four walls.
