Glossy tiles in a muted shade will reflect light, making the room brighter and giving the overall impression of a bigger space. They also have the added advantage of making the space look clean and shiny (provided you wipe them down often!).
Pale Powder by Farrow & Ball. This is the most popular of our shades of aqua. It has an unparalleled softness and in north facing rooms can read almost as a delicate grey, but it is rarely cold due to the inclusion of green pigment. It is a great favourite for use in pretty attic bedrooms where it can be used on both ceiling and walls. White & Light Tones Undercoat.
Favourite colour (so far!) for lounge walls. Card Room Green by Farrow & Ball. This colour is named after the study-like rooms much favoured in the Victorian period and is unapologetic in its masculine feel. It really comes alive when contrasted with a warm neutral like Fawn or Stony Ground, as used in Victorian homes, but feels more powerful and contemporary when used with no contrasts at all. Dark Tones Undercoat.
