The STYLE RULES

Think out­side the box with a lim­ited colour pal­ette

Style at Home (UK) - - The Style Book -

Open the door to new ideas by us­ing paint shades to high­light ar­chi­tec­tural fea­tures. Limit colour choices Stick to just three shades – a light, a dark and an ac­cent colour. Paint the walls that get the most sun­light in the light­est shade. DRAW the eye Make door­frames, skirt­ing boards and built-in cup­board doors pop

by paint­ing them in your ac­cent shade, so they be­come the fo­cus. LAY geo­met­ric tiles State­ment floor tiles in a neu­tral colour in­tro­duce pat­tern with­out de­tract­ing from the drama of painted walls and doors. Mir­ror colour-blocked walls and trims by choos­ing an­gu­lar fur­nish­ings. Ac­ces­sorise in the same pal­ette for a co­he­sive and mod­ern look.

Walls painted in Woad ab­so­lute matt emul­sion and Grey Stone ab­so­lute matt emul­sion, both £45 for 2.5L, Lit­tle Greene
