Designatex Recreate the Look : Columned Ash Living Room

Columned Ash is one of the bolder designs in our new Designatex range of luxury vinyl sheet flooring. It is a modern twist on traditional parquet flooring, with each plank laid in the same direction.

Ideal for large open spaces such as living rooms, its strong colour variation and linear, abstract pattern makes it a dramatic choice for creating a room with impact

With some bold colours and unusual, well chosen accessories, here’s how to create an eye-catching living space like this one featured in the new Designatex brochure.

A Walk On the Wild Side

As a more modern and unexpected twist on animal print, why not add a portrait of a zebra or two onto your sofa? We love the combination of lime green, black and white in this Twin Zebra Cushion, £19.95 from Dwell. Mix and match your cushion designs for a more eclectic feel.

A for Amazing

A bright and zingy colour scheme looks great when pared down with monochrome accessories. Here’s the same lettered jug as used on our Designatex shoot, the Design Letters Aqua Jug, £56 from Amara.com. Choose your initial to personalise your space.

A Slice of Lime

Fresh or artificial flowers help bring a room to life, even more so when arranged in a striking vase. We love the zesty lime colour and beautiful swirled design of this Key Lime Collection Glass Swirl Vase, £19.99 from Dunelm Mill.

Bold as Brass

A statement ceiling pendant lamp with a metallic finish adds warmth and excitement to a room.

This brass Antonia Lamp (£80 from John Lewis) has a traditional industrial look whilst the Habitat Aerial Copper Metal Ceiling Light (£50 from Argos) has a more retro feel.

Back to Nature

Bamboo, rattan or wicker tables bring a natural, stripped back look which contrasts brilliantly with modern home interiors. These unique items are furniture can be hard to find in high street furniture shops, so search antique shops and Ebay for bargains on authentic vintage designs.

We found these alternative versions online, the Conran Aiken Side Table (£229 from Marks & Spencer) and Chubby Natural side table (£100 from Cane Furniture Warehouse).
