Soft Satin, such as Hare by Crown Paint, is an elegant, delicate hue that brings subtle sophistication to a scheme. It’s a pale shade that has a warm tone, so is great for small rooms that need a hint of colour without overpowering the space. It’s cosy for winter but also bright and optimistic, perfect for a revamp in Spring. Match walls in this shade with a toning off-white for woodwork and pick out architecture, such as a wooden fire surround or door, in a toning shade of grey.

Painting your walls in bright, crisp hues like cream, primrose yellow or brilliant white will trick the eye into thinking the area is brighter and airier than it actually is. They’ll also help to reflect the natural light that filters in throughout the day and enhance the artificial light during evening hours, too. If your hallway is especially small and needs an extra helping hand, try a specialist paint that contains light-reflecting particles, like Dulux’s Ultra White Matt.
