Like the rest of the house, the living room is decorated in soothing cream and stone shades, with just a hint of colour in the dress curtains. A window seat with hidden storage was added to the bay - great when extra seating is needed and for tidying away clutter. Half-height shutters keep the light flowing in, while providing privacy from passers by. Similar sofa, Sofa.com, Similar footstool, The Dormy House.
