A chimney breast decorated with bespoke, contemporary-style panelling that incorporates a wall-mounted television makes an interesting focal point. Dark seating teamed with bright cushions adds accents of colour to the scheme, drawing attention away from the television. The finishing touches are thoughtfully chosen pieces of mirrored or reflective furniture that help to lighten the room.

How to make it work

* Go for grey walls and carpet to create the perfect backdrop for key pieces of different shapes - it'll also help to prevent the television dominating the room.

* Choose mirrors and graphic artwork distract attention from the television.

* Opt for a blind with an over-sized pattern to add interest to the scheme, without being overpowering.
