    Hi, The Sofa is NOT the Jardan Nook! It is the COSH - AVOCA. They do look similar. This is the exact picture on the COSH LIVING website. Cosh sofa has squared off seat cushions (nice) and is slightly deeper than the nook (92cm versus 83cm). I am in the middle of deliberating between the 2 at the moment! Its much like the Fanuli - Frankie (apparently upholsterer there used to work for Jardan... they look exactly the same!).

    Well there you have it......both are gorgeous then and I don't think you could go wrong with either. If I can be of any help to you at all you Susan, I have a very deep lounge and whilst they look really nice and are great for lounging on, they're not the smartest when it comes to having people over to sit down on need a trillion cushions for people to lean my advice to you is go for the less deep one unless you plan to lie down most the time!

Repeat the palette throughoutWhen selecting furnishings and fabrics for your kitchen/living room, ensure each zone shares a similar palette so you can build a sense of cohesion. For example, “carrying a feature timber veneer from the kitchen through to the entertainment unit in the living room will tie the areas together,” says Austin.Similarly, in this open-plan room the island bench draws a connection between the kitchen and sofa, as a similar tone has been used for the upholstery, while the natural wicker pendant and the wooden bar stools at the breakfast bar reflect the natural textures of the rug and sofa legs to create another link.

4. Brighten up your living roomA quick way to add cheeriness to interiors made dark during the wintery month of August is to change cushion covers to brightly patterned ones, drape a textured throw blanket or two or to move in your most colourful accessories. If you are buying new homewares, start by choosing your colour palette, using the existing wall and furniture schemes as your colour cue. Take a photo of your room and ask for advice from an in-house decorator at a favourite store. Most stores will be happy to help put together the scheme of your dreams. Or post the photo on a Houzz discussion page and ask the community for advice.Finally, don’t be afraid to layer multiple textures to add some depth to your soft furnishings decor.Browse a photo gallery of cushions and throw rugs

A neutral base also allows you to change up your look with colourful cushions or a new rug, while retaining a classic undertone.

1. Freehand soft furnishingsForget about cushions, curtains and upholstery with linear, symmetrical patterns – this season is all about soft furnishings dressed in painterly prints, according to Brisbane designer Anne Ellard. “Freehand illustrations on soft furnishings such as watercolour tropical florals, abstract brushstrokes and tribal designs are a great way to add some subtle patterns into your interiors and are a relief from the harsh geometrics that have dominated interior decor recently,” she says.Take cues from this living space and cluster several freehand illustrated cushions together on your sofa for a punchy, personality-packed look. Alternatively, prop a single patterned cushion on your lounge and pair it with one or two neutral block-coloured pillows to create a scheme that’s more restrained in style.Clashing colours and patterns that just work
