Shades to avoid

Ideal Home (UK) - - Room Ideas -

■ PUMP­KIN When seek­ing a pal for your pur­ple scheme, earthy tones are the ones to shun. This feisty orange needs a much stronger part­ner and will squash laven­der’s soft ap­peal.

■ Jet BLACK Cer­tain to zap the love­li­ness from this so­phis­ti­cated scheme, un­for­giv­ing black will look harsh and heavy-handed.

■ Cus­tard As pur­ple’s part­ner on the colour wheel, yel­low should be a shoo-in – but this cloy­ing ver­sion will make for a sickly ef­fect. Want some sun? Pick a pas­tel in­stead.
