From indigo to violet, give your room a moody hue with a deep purple palette. Add a luxe look to this blackberry base with brightening pops of gold.
For a similar sofa, try the Chester, £2,500, Habitat
2. Nectarine and Kiwi
For a cocktail of colours, why not team two complimentary shades? A fresh kiwi palette is the perfect backdrop for pops of lively nectarine; add streamlined oak furniture and dainty floral patterns for a mid-century twist.
3. Orange and Peach
For the bolder palette, try this mouth-watering combination of orange and peach. Layer fuchsia pink, terracotta and nectarine for a veritable cocktail of tropical colours.
Art prints, from £14.95 each, Petra Schüßler range, King & McGaw
Pep up a neutral scheme with a dash of vibrant lime. Keep interest in a calming country palette with a patterned wallpaper and a range of textures, then pick out the lime notes with matching fresh flowers.
Varese cushion in Leaf, £60, Designers Guild
Inspired by the intricate pattern on the stump of a tree, this eye-catching wallpaper is instantly uplifting thanks to its cheery colourway. Feeling cautious? Try popping a small piece into a white frame, then team it with other patterns in the same shade for easy, do-it-yourself artworks.
Tree Circles wallpaper, £36 per roll, Scion range, Wallpaperdirect
Choose plum and grape shades for a plush, opulent feel; match with hints of pink for a bolder look, or pair with beige and grey for a soothing scheme.
7. Cherry Red
Thanks to its contrasting patterns and big-top curtain, this lipstick-hued bath is tantalisingly retro. Just add a matching shower cap for the cherry on the cake (sorry, couldn't resist).
