Get the Look: Modern Comfort


The Modern Comfort Trend

The lounge room is the modern oasis – that retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the world where you can unwind and completely relax. This distinguishes the modern lounge room from the stuffy sitting rooms and parlours of previous epochs. Formality and fuss have been removed in favour of contemporary style and deep-seated comfort. Guests can be entertained in a dedicated comfort zone with luxuriously plush surfaces on which you can curl up for hours.

Styling Tips

Modern comfort is all about providing an experience that’s incredibly relaxing and supportive while adding in the hallmarks of a modern sensibility. Here’s a few things to think about when looking to achieve this look at home:

• In terms of both your comfort level and your colour palette, think of your larger furniture items as your ‘base layer’. Consider investing in a lounge suite that combines contemporary design and plush, deep-seating. Opt for a neutral colour on which you can layer your accent colours and decorator pieces.

• Introduce a range of occasional furniture which will complement your colour scheme.

• Add a pop of colour with a selection of stylish homewares. Get creative with your throw cushions, rugs, photo frames, wall art and vases.

• Add a touch of personality with a few carefully selected pieces that hold special meaning for you. Think family photos, framed postcards, heirlooms, hand-crafted items and treasured gifts.
