Dining Room

 

CEILING: Bridge Blue No.222, A deeper version of our popular Lambeth Walk No.210. Using a warm blue on the ceiling makes for a more interesting space. WALLS: Blueprint No.50, Striking black, or is it purple or blue? This opulent rich wall colour is a great backdrop for artwork and mirrors. WOODWORK: Lambeth Walk No.210, Blue with a subtle grey base. This soft blue grey complements the ceiling colour, giving a cohesive look. ACCENT: Mayfair Dark No.218, A deep dusky blue. Lighter than the wall colour, this sumptuous rich blue will give a layered indigo look.

Children's Bedroom

  

CEILING: Morning Blue No.32, A versatile clean mid-blue; team with Walpole No.42 for a complementary white. A great sky colour for the ceiling! WALLS: Boathouse No.33, This vibrant blue is a natural partner for Morning Blue No.32 or Observatory No34. Ideal as a striking backdrop to wall art and accessories. WOODWORK: Observatory No.34, A beautiful bold intense blue. A contemporary splash of colour. ACCENT: Walpole No.42, A clean blue white, perfect for use with blues and greys for a crisp look.
