THE DECORAT ION
There’s a playful spirit in the air in the world of decorating, which Swedish paint brand Alcro (alcro.se) has perfectly captured with this scheme. It is not only incredibly bright (all of the colours used are from the company’s ‘Miami Déco’ collection), but also clever, as the artful composition plays with the dimensions of the room, taking colour blocking to the next level. Look at the way the ceiling has been visually heightened using extended segments of pale blue and yellow paint (‘South Beach’ and ‘Florida’ respectively), and how the perfectly crisp sections of colour all line up towards the bottom of the wall to create a contemporary take on a dado rail. £20.95 for one litre, Paint & Paper Ltd (paint-paper.co.uk).
