    Fiesta red says free-spirited

    Just as a red dress makes you stand out at a party, so a red room always grabs attention. Fans of red are spontaneous and love being in the spotlight. This hot look is so eye catching, it would be a fantastic room to have a party in.

    Ocean blue for a laid back hue

    Summer skies, peaceful sea, blue whispers tranquillity. It’s a favourite with easy-going types and perfect for laid back living spaces. Think kicking back with a book and a cup of tea on an easy Sunday afternoon.

    Pistachio green for the playful and experimental

    This pale green can be invigorating or soothing so it’s popular with experimental types who are always trying out new looks. This shade reminds us of the countryside in spring – it’s so fresh and we love the floral display.

    Go berry red for a seductive style

    Raspberry is the sexiest colour around. Want more romance in your life? Use it on walls and furniture for a seriously seductive scheme. We’ve fallen for this intense colour saturated look – that luscious pink is irresistible.

    Sunshine yellow says summer lover

    Upbeat and energising, yellow is a hot choice for happy-go-lucky types. Use it to cheer up a kitchen or for a pick me up in the bathroom. This scheme is like the perfect British summer – lots of sun with a tiny touch of grey.
