1. Living room with flashes of orange
Jubilant orange fizzes with vitality making it the ideal hue for perking up a lacklustre living room.
If you’re going for all-over wall colour, select a subtle shade that won’t overpower the scheme. For a more daring look, choose a vibrant tangerine shade to pick out a key area in your living room, such as the inside of a door or the wall around a window.
2. Warm, neutral living room
There’s nothing cosier than a neutral palette, provided you get the balance right.
Paint your walls in a deep shade of taupe to create a warm, cocooning effect. If you don’t want to go dark all over, try painting the wall behind your sofa in a deep shade and choose lighter tones for the rest of the room.
Finish the plenty of comfy cushions and throws in luxurious velvets and chunky knit wool – perfect for snuggling up with the family at the weekend.
