In the red

November 3, 2010

I hear there’s a chilli winter ahead. Boom boom…

If you were sensible enough to get your mitts on a copy of our October issue a few weeks back, you’ll have already seen these lovely images. If not – here’s a little taster of the kind of fabulous decorating schemes you’re missing out on every month! The wallpaper in this retro-tastic dining room is Dandelion Mobile, £55 per roll from MissPrint. The table and bench are from John Lewis.

RED ROOM RED ROOM RED ROOM… (I recently watched The Shining. It hasn’t disturbed me at all.) I love this scheme. Dark grey and red. Yum, yum yum. The grey paint here is Clouded Slate by Dulux, the curtain fabric is Connections in Chilli, from John Lewis. The EDIBLE ‘Revival’ coffee table is also John Lewis.

I love this Lego paintable wallpaper, just £6.98 per roll from B&Q‘s Superfresco range. The bulldog lamp is from Ben De Lisi at Debenhams (who else?!). The rug and bedside table are both M&S and the bed linen is Bed By Conran’s Domino range at House of Fraser.

Swing back to the Seventies with Harlequin‘s Lagoon wallpaper, a Retro Blocks rug from Next and a hanging chair from The Cow Shed. The wall storage boxes are just £25 for three from Tesco Direct. What a bargain! – Ellie

    Retro is so cool. Those rooms are bright and vibrant. I believe that type of decorating promotes a happier existence.
