Christmas living rooms
Keep to a simple living room colour palette of ivory and old gold, teamed with elegant French-style furniture, for a classic look that won't date.
A soft-sheen damask wallpaper adds a touch of shimmer to the scheme without dominating the room. Try teaming it with silk curtains in a soft shade of gold, a classic ivory sofa and an accent armchair in a golden damask.
Decorate the tree with glass baubles and subtle touches of silver and gold, then dress the mantlepiece with fresh foliage and flowers for a natural look.
