1 Stick with calming tones like blues, greens and greys for the walls.

2 Don’t select anything too theme-y – add seaside style with textiles instead.

3 Choose furniture that’s light and airy. Think pale woods, glass and metal, and nothing too bulky.

4 Mix subtle patterns to keep things interesting without overwhelming the room.
