1. Add feature curtains. When it comes to living room design and styling ideas, adding feature floor-length curtains brings warmth and cosiness to the space and creates a focal point, this is especially important if you don't have a feature wall. Sophie’s Peacock Fabric by the Metre makes the perfect backdrop offering a warm stone background, with Sophie’s vibrant peacock illustrations that flourishes vibrant hues of indigo and shades of emerald, turquoise and aqua blues.

2. Display character. Showcase the things you love. This large vintage lantern adds texture and style to this room and fills up empty space with its character. Meanwhile adding cosy cushions makes this spot instantly relaxing and comfortable. Sophie adds her favourite white roses to the table, which are the perfect go-to flower for all occasions and add an organic element to this room, which brings it to life.

4. Accessorise your side table. Adding a few books to your side table or coffee table will help balance the room and make it feel lighter. It’s the small accessories that make the difference when it comes to home styling, and Sophie’s Peacocks Mug sits perfectly on top.

5. Add a relaxing atmosphere with candles. Candles can transform a room and create a relaxing and calming atmosphere. In addition, they smell incredible and once lit they also make a welcoming environment. Cluster three together to create an elegant look.

6. Add more flowers and foliage. By adding more greenery and flowers into this setting it really brings the room to life and creates a more energetic environment. A living room is a central part of any house and should be a welcoming room for all guests. Sophie’s Peacocks Jug looks wonderful displaying her pretty roses.
