Colour of the week

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.

my favorite master bedroom was when we painted the master bedroom ceiling and a 12 inch border on the walls; pale lilac and the walls lavender. It was an experiment that turned out beautifully.

Dark colour scheme

It's true that a pale colour palette can make a small space appear larger, but a dark colour scheme can add drama. The key to picking colours for a small living room is to keep it simple: choose two or three hues and carry them through the scheme.
