The kitchen shade is a mix of country-inspired apple green and red. The green shaker style cabinetry is off-set with a traditional wooden worktop. Red accessories are dotted around to add a colour pop, a vibrant accent shade against the serene green.

This family-friendly living space lives alongside a more formal lounge area. This light room is a bold mix of colour with a cornflower blue with a yellow painted bolthole window.

No matter the weather this room is always  basking in a sunlight shade soft yellow due to this clever use of paint. The statement shade within this style of window emits a sunny glow whenever the light catches it.
