Olive green living room

Dark walls provide an excellent background for a bold contemporary painting by Sophie Coryndon. To balance the look, keep the flooring pale and choose light wood furniture, such as this console table from Heal’s. This helps to bounce light back against the wall, intensifying the colour.
