Painted in Vardo No.288 | Estate Emulsion & Pale Powder No.204 | Estate Eggshell

The living room is the place we all look forward to retreating to after a long day or lounging about in on a lazy weekend – add a well-chosen scheme, and you’re assured of a space you can’t wait to come home to. Whether you’re drawn to strong, grounding tones that invite and envelop, or powdery hues that soothe and soften, there’s a scheme to suit your style.

Strong Tones

India Yellow No.66 | Modern Emulsion & Modern Eggshell

Darker tones can give living rooms a magical quality, especially in the evening light. For interest no matter the time of day, try contrasting tones of equal intensity on walls and ceilings, or where one room flows into another.

Grounding Greens

Let Nature In

Wallpapered in Hegemone BP 5705

The simplicity of soft greys and off-whites works especially well with lush botanical touches, from a tropical houseplant to a simple vase of flowers – even a riot of blooms on a floral feature wall.

Softly Does It

Powdery pinks and dusky neutrals can create a calming and restorative living space. To add the illusion of height, or to keep things feeling soft, try carrying your wall colour over chair rails and base boards, too.
