Choose tickings and linens for upholstery

Mix generous armchairs with classic occassional chairs in the living room. Prop up gilt-framed mirrors against the wall for an informal feel and pull the whole scheme together with a textured rug. Use a giant clock to make a focal point above the mantelpiece and choose cushions with a hint of gold for added glamour.

If this is the look for you, don't miss our shabby chic decorating ideas.

Find similarly-styled armchairs and knitted throws at House of Fraser, cushions at John Lewis and a similar coffee table at The Decorator Source. The wall clock is from Graham and Green.
