Show off your room’s special features

Show off special details with deep colours and crisp white highlights.

Decorating a living room or majlis that has unique interior features? You’re in luck: built-in bookcases, windows, arched doorways and mouldings are wonderful opportunities to increase interest using colour. For a cool but calming natural look, try muted colours like dusty greens, powder pinks and creams or deep shades of purple, chocolate brown and charcoal.

If you prefer a more modern look, paint your mouldings and other special details a clean, crisp white. If you have high ceilings, choose a colour that is two or three shades darker than your walls. This will bring the eye downwards and give the space a cosy, welcoming feel. These tricks will allow the beautiful, unique details in your living room to be the centre of attention.
