Texture adds another layer of interest to a scheme and here’s a timeless country living room that has it in oodles.
We love the beautiful rustic backdrop of this room with its exposed stonework and ancient beams. And it’s the perfect setting for a cosy living area that will see you through winter.
There’s a definite trend for sofas that combine the mellow tones of leather with soft-to-the-touch fabric, and this gorgeous Wallace corner sofa from Alexander & James comes in a warm Indiana Tan leather with a soft Breton checked woollen fabric. An antique-effect studding detail adds a classic finishing touch.
Team with a William Plaid Romance footstool and matching cushions for a twist of Highland chic, and layer up the sofa with Luxe Cool Earth grey velvet cushions and Poole Mocha herringbone cushions, along with chic leather cushions, for a toasty feel. (All from Alexander & James)
Add in characterful pieces such as a vintage stool and big up the texture with wicker furniture and seagrass accessories.
And don’t forget to place some snuggly throws close at hand to keep those winter chills at bay.
