Elegant looks for winter living rooms

The essentials in a winter living room are comfort and warmth — and you can create this cosy feel with the right decorating scheme. Take a look through our beautiful photo gallery for inspirational ideas for traditional, modern and country-style living rooms.

If your living room is pale and interesting, it can still look cosy. A flickering open fire or stove will give even the whitest of rooms a lovely warmth. Gather sumptuous sofas and chairs around the fireplace, and add texture with throws and a luxe rug.

Make a winter living room needs to be a retreat from the outside world, so make the space as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Stash away clutter in a painted alcove sideboard, and create plenty of space for a traditional armchair, complete with soft throws and upholstered footstool.

Paint walls in a classic shade of cream and layer up colour on soft furnishings and accessories, or perhaps go for a Highland-inspired scheme with soft green, heather and plaid paint and fabrics for a cohesive feel.

In a contemporary living room, soften sleek modern pieces by adding texture, such as faux fur cushions or a luxe sheepskin rug.

A statement wallpaper on a feature wall, such as a striking trompe l’oeil design — for example, a library bookcase design to add depth to a room.

One way of creating your own winter wonderland is with a large nature-inspired mural or artwork. Painted panelled on walls lends a coastal feel and looks snug alongside woollen accessories — or you can create the illusion of this with wallpaper.

Here a beautiful stone fireplace is illuminated with an open fire, bringing warmth to this calm, white scheme. Pale grey cushions and a rug add extra comfort to this living room.
