LOVELY LIVING ROOMS FOR LESS
Create a relaxed room for all the family – on a family-friendly budget
Moving house can be expensive, leaving you with little money to do up your new pad. But most new movers are itching to get decorating straight away, especially if they have a family to settle into their new space. We’ve come up with five colourful ways to help you create a family living room you’ll love.
1. Embrace colour blocking
Try painting one colour on the wall behind your sofa, then pick a tonal colour for the walls around your windows and another for any alcoves in the room. Varying shades of teal work really well for this.
2. Focus on your frames
Painting your windows and doorframes is a quick and easy way to create a striking effect in your new home. Go for a darker shade on your frames than on your walls and you’ll have the added bonus of making your room feel larger.
