Jimmie Karlsson's London flat / photo: Katarina Malmstrom Brown 2011 / "The sofa, from Ikea, has been given a makeover. ‘I turned it inside out and dyed it black. It’s ended up pale grey, but I like the effect.’ The cushions are from Missoni and John Lewis and the gold lamp from an antiques store in Shoreditch. On the wall is a large Ross Watson photograph (rosswatson.com) and paintings by Dan Hillier (danhillier.com)"
ource: Martyn Lawrence-Bullard Design Ornate, bone inlaid nightstand and bed! Simple faux fur throw, paisly pillow and textured cream wallpaper. Beautiful metal lamp, Asian statues and orchid arrangement.
Deep colours are bang on-trend but need contrast to shine. If you have a black fireplace, try pairing it with reflective textures, such as glowing bronze metallics and warm copper, and some jewel tones with flowers. Add a few different floral displays, too.
