‘Colour blocking – in other words, using multiple shades at a time in clearly defined sections of one wall, has become more of a prominent trend, particularly in the living room.

Warm, but not oppressive, these greys are ideal for cosy living spaces. These light grey shades have either a touch of yellow in them, giving them a brownish tint, or a touch of red, which gives a pinkish tinge. This colour is great for east and west-facing rooms for diffused light at sunrise or sunset respectively, while adding warmth at other times. Team ochre to yellow-tinged greys, or try a dark, earthy green. Pink-tinted greys will look great with coral and peach.
