  • Spearmint hallway with wooden console table and picture frames

    Break up a solid block of colour on walls with white frames and folk-art-inspired pieces. While most greens will perk up an icy blue, go for those with a yellow base for an even livelier effect. Opt for earthy shades, such as cumin or nutmeg, to give your scheme some welcome warmth.
