Living room with walls in Blackened No.2011 Estate Emulsion and trim in Down Pipe No.26 Estate Eggshell
We recommend choosing colours that all have the same tonal weight. It’s best to decorate floor by floor: considering the sightlines between rooms – there’s no need for military precision, but it is worth envisioning how colours will complement the adjacent rooms.
It can be rather effective to reverse wall and woodwork colours room by room, switching the colour of the walls in the main area to the woodwork colour of the other rooms. This creates a feeling of continuity throughout, and varies drama, as some rooms will be lighter than others, but still feel connected.
