Choose warm, harmonisous tones for small living rooms such as a studio,  library or media room. We like to team rich maroon and burnt orange to create a relaxing, yet inviting environment. Contrast plush velvets with hard flooring with these colours.

For the ultimate feminine bedroom choose a bold floral wall covering. There is no better combination of colour pink and purple. Keep the rest of the room light and airy with crisp white linen or soft pale pastel tones.

Mustard yellow and soft dove grey are one of our favourite colour combinations for winter - they also happen to be bang on trend. Think outside the square with with paint and be brave, it's a cost effective way to make an impact in any room. Don't always go neutral. These tones look gorgeous teamed with neutral furniture cushions and homewares.
