For­get­ting the old adage about the two colours that should never be seen to­gether, the Lon­don sit­ting room of ac­ces­sories de­signer Wendee Ou com­bines walls painted in a pis­ta­chio green (try San­der­son’s Sil­ver Frost or Whit­stable Blue for sim­i­lar) with up­hol­stery in an equally serene shade of blue. Re­fresh­ingly sim­ple, the green paint used here has grey tones that make the room feel calm, while white wood­work and cor­nic­ing make the space airy. Ac­ces­sories com­bin­ing blue and green hues bring the whole look to­gether.
