Earthy Tones

Earth tones derived from mother nature can give your lounge room a rustic, natural feel. Imagine your living room with a brown leather lounge Sydney, a nice lavender rug and adorned in wooden accessories such as cabinets and bookshelves. Oh, and don’t forget the greenery. Style some indoor plants to really add some colour and make the room shine.

Modern Chic

Modern chic is all about simplicity with vivid highlights. Imagine a painted white room with minimalist furniture of vivid reds and deep blues, and tones of grey. Adding little pops of colour around the place with small styling touches like vases filled with dried plants and natural textures gives it a modern touch.

Subtle Blending
