This works especially well in open-plan living spaces, helping to zone the relaxation area from the thoroughfares or dining, cooking and study areas.

Refreshing blue-greens, pale shades needn’t lack punch,’ says Jamie Telford, Director, Roundhouse. ‘We love the refreshing tones of this paint colour, which has a blue base warmed with green.
