Divide the wall with a dado rail and paint the lower area in cream or off-white to prevent a dark shade becoming overwhelming. Elegant white shapes, such as this grandfather clock from Swedish Chair silhouetted against the wall break up the horizontal lines, while accent colours of yellow and black create contrast. The striking candelabra is from Summerhill & Bishop.
