A Cosy Black and White Sitting Room and How to Get The Look

Autumn is the season for getting more cosy. It’s time to light the fire, turn on the lamps, and wriggle the toes in a comfy rug. This black and white sitting room is pushing all the right buttons for me. It’s traditional in style but the colour scheme prevents it from looking too ‘country’. And although a monochrome colour pallete can look harsh sometimes, this room is cosy and inviting. The tile effect wallpaper on the chimney breast is a just the right amount of pattern in the room, along with the small amounts on the cushions and the lampshade. Nothing is too overwhelming. It’s well balanced and no colour dominates. Just the kind of room that says ‘come in and put your feet up’.

    I love the Victorian Reproduction Fireplace, these types of fires seem to be on the decline recently with many people going for the ultra-modern fires that are more minimalistic in design. Personally, I love the Victorian style fires and think they look fantastic when installed in a typical terraced house. It also reminds me of my childhood roasting marshmallows over the open fire.
