Get The Look: 6 high-street buys inspired by this jewel-toned living room

Capture Yvonne’s style in your own home.

Each week, we take an Insta-worthy room in Ireland and show you how you can get the look yourself with high street buys.

This week, Yvonne Harte’s living room in Co Cork, with its textured fabrics and jewel tones, is our inspiration.

“I wanted a cosy, comfortable room that we could relax in in the evening, but it also needed to accommodate a play space for the kids,” says Yvonne.

We used an L-shaped sofa to divide the space. Colour for me brings a space to life and I added touches of brass in the light fittings which also tie in really well with the beautiful green armchair. 

Harvey Norman,, H&M Home and Ikea were Yvonne’s main ports of call when fitting out her living room. Below are six high-street products that’ll help you get this look in your own home…

1. Fabyuleus Red Velvet Cushion, TK Maxx, €16.99
