Love it or hate it, winter is nearly here, but while it’s cold outside, you can still make your home feel super-cosy. Even if you have an achingly modern living room, we have a few ideas to give those cool, sharp edges a wonderfully warm feel.
Cosy Snug with Alcove Shelving
Warm paint colours don’t have to be dark. Try adding depth by painting your room in a combination of cosy neutrals or soft greens. If you don’t want to commit to a colour on your walls, have fun with accessories and soft furnishings; find an accent colour and bring it to life in your design scheme with cushions, curtains and artwork. Powdered greens, indulgent oranges, grounded browns and elegant vintage blues are all on trend this season.
Get into the Mood with Lighting
Nothing makes winter warmer than soft, ambient lighting so switch off those bright ceiling spotlights and add a glow with integrated LED lighting. Cleverly built into cabinetry and perfectly positioned, integrated lighting can highlight architectural features, cast a new light on your artwork or create perfectly-focused task lighting for hidden desk spaces. Lighting is totally transformational and can instantly update the look of your room or enhance its mood – all at the flick of a switch.
Dining Room & Library
Focus on Family
It’s too easy to come home from work on a cold dark night and throw yourself in front of the TV. When temperatures fall, not many of us want to venture out but when you’re all inside together, why not relax with more traditional pursuits? To avoid the temptation of TV, our stylish and modern living room furniture can be built with stunning Levigo doors that will disguise even the largest TVs and cleverly hide away all technology and media. Our contemporary cabinetry is made to order, so if you want to include a beautiful bookshelf or a deep drawer – perfect for your board games, all you have to do is ask a designer.
Get Tactile with Textures
Have you heard of hygge? Pronounced ‘Hoo-ga’, it’s a Scandinavian style concept that encompasses a feeling of cosy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. Drape a sheepskin rug on your wooden floor or a chenille throw over your leather armchair, and you’ll increase the cuddle-factor in even the coldest corners. Woollen cushions, blankets and rugs are easy ways to warm-up your space. Contemporary furniture ideas such as a bespoke blanket box that doubles as a window seat or clever built-in storage, purpose-built for your soft furnishings during the summer months, are stylish and practical additions that add personality to your modern living room, cinema room or snug.
Living Room Furniture
Ahead of the Curve
Even in a room that has a stylish linear layout or strict proportions, the inclusion of curved cabinets and shelving can soften the overall aesthetic. By creating excitement for the eye, a room can feel instantly welcoming. Our beautiful bespoke cabinetry can be individually designed to include curved edges, giving even the most sophisticated furniture a playful feel.
The Perfect Finish
If you want your furniture to bring a warm and cosy vibe to your modern living room, we offer a wealth of warm woods and luxurious finishes that will add richness and character to your lounge or snug. For a wonderfully retro vibe, we love Ronson Oak veneer with its lush deep finish, Dark Oak veneer for a touch of timeless elegance and Anthracite Larch for a contemporary finish with wonderfully warm accent colours. Ideal for cosy winter living.

From our initial enquiry to the completion of our staircase, we have found all the members of the team at Neville Johnson to be very helpful, courteous and professional in all our dealings. The staircase has transformed our living space. We have been very impressed with this company from start to finish and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Pauline Treston, Northumberland
From the moment the brochure was delivered, I was optimistic that we were buying quality. I wasn’t disappointed. All contact made was courteous, polite and clear, with phone calls confirmed by email. In short, we’re really thrilled with our library and it was effortless from start to finish.
Alison Cole, Swinton
From the initial contact with the company to the completion and installation everything was utterly professional; we have no hesitation in recommending the company to anybody. We are so pleased, that Neville Johnson is returning to install a new staircase!
Mr and Mrs Thorpe, Radcliffe
A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.
Richard Smith, Surrey
The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.
Cherry Murdoch, London
Our new staircase looks fantastic. We’ve had lots of compliments and it has transformed our hallway. The whole experience was great from beginning to end, from discussing our requirements to the finished article.
Mr & Mrs Begbie, Hampshire
I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.
Mrs K Holroyd, Wrexham
From contacting the company to the point where the cupboards were fitted I was impressed by the whole process. The initial salesperson that visited was knowledgeable and helpful. I would certainly use Neville Johnson again and highly recommend this company.
Mrs S. D, Lincolnshire
From the initial meeting with the senior designer to discuss our needs, to the surveyor and then the installer, we were extremely delighted with the end result. The installation process went without any problems. All the staff were very professional and we would recommend Neville Johnson without hesitation.
Rosalind Tunnicliffe, Solihull
From the outset of our contract with Neville Johnson, we were supported with design choices, given expert advice and all deadlines were met. Everyone was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. The craftsmanship is superb; our staircase is now an outstanding feature of our open plan lounge.
