Fol­low the 60-30-10 dec­o­rat­ing rule to add in­ter­est to a neu­tral space if you’re colour shy: 60 per cent of a room is for your pri­mary colour pal­ette (think walls, floors, rugs and so­fas), while 30 per cent is ded­i­cated to your secondary colour pal­ette (soft fur­nish­ings and ac­cent fur­ni­ture). ‘Your 10 per cent is your ac­cent colour,’ says Will tay­lor, colour con­sul­tant. ‘this could in­clude lamps, cush­ions, art­work and ac­ces­sories.’

Find a sim­i­lar sofa at the Lola ot­toman, £795, is by Anne Kyyrö Quinn.
