Colorful pillows and classic ginger jars brighten up this welcoming living room pulled together by Katie Riddell for her home in Melbourne, Australia. Neutral pieces, like a cream-colored sofa and a stunning brass coffee table, lay a stunning foundation and make it easy to switch out accessories and experiment with new shades and patterns often.

From Maxwell:

  • Ivory-Colored Living Room Set – $925 – This lovely living room set is only 3 years old and in wonderful shape. The two smaller pieces are rarely used, and we just had the long couch and ottoman professionally cleaned for this sale. We most urgently need to sell the long sofa, but would prefer to sell the whole set together (long sofa, love seat, chair, ottoman). Please contact me for a quote on different combos – i.e. sofa only, sofa + love seat, sofa + ottoman + chair, etc. Originally paid $2180.00 for the entire set – will sell for $925 or best offer. Long sofa alone will be $500, or best offer. – BROOKLYN
