Introduce unexpected muddy tones to an otherwise pretty scheme for a sophisticated effect. The feminine ‘Satin Lining’ here is offset with a wraparound border of ‘Go Greenand a painted ceiling rail in ‘Open Water’, all from the ELLE Decoration by Crown collection

As we all know, picking the right shade of white paint is a fine art. For a library space try a white with a beige undertone, such as ‘Highlight’ from the ELLE Decoration by Crown collection. It will complement rather than fight with the aged paper of the your burgeoning book collection.

3 Dining room

Follow a strict colour palette for a elegant dining space by linking your painted walls to your furniture and accessories. Here ‘Botanical Noir’ is used on the walls and ‘Trailing Plant’ for the woodwork. Coloured glass beautifully casts its shadows on flat matt painted walls, which will be highlighted magically with dimmed lighting and candlelight.

4 Snug

The current revival for all things nineties has extended to interiors. When it comes to decorating, that means a reignited love affair with warm taupes and soft beige. Colours which are perfectly suited to a cocooning snug, such as ‘Delicately Dark’, shown here.

5 Living room

A white painted ceiling is a tried and tested way to create the illusion of a larger area, but here the concept has been turned on its head. By using a lighter shade, such as ‘Personal Touch’, for the walls and a deeper tone, like ‘Pigment’, for the ceiling you can reset the focus and create a more intimate living room.

6 Home office

Choose greys with delicate undertones of mauve for a home office that you’ll actually enjoy spending time in. Try two shades in the same colour family to create depth – ‘Sculpture’ is shown here with the darker ‘Rock Solid’. Subtle colour blocking like this is an ideal way to section off areas within an open-plan home.

7 Bathroom

Create a spa feeling in your bathroom with the ethereal ‘White Feather’ paint. Team it with pale wood floors and off-white pieces for a truly peaceful space. All the paint in the ELLE Decoration by Crown collection has a matt finish, suitable for both walls and woodwork, making it perfect for achieving uniform coverage.

8 Reception room

The dramatic shade of ‘Black Glass’ paint makes a memorable design statement for guests that can set the tone for the rest of a home. For a truly lasting impression, also consider this same colour for your hallway and entrance.
