5. Gunmetal grey
Do you dare to do dark? If you want the cosy, cosseting feel of a deeper palette without committing to black, gunmetal grey, or even dark blue, is the perfect colour choice.
What’s more, it makes a great canvas for eye-popping accent colours – bright yellow and pink are a punchy pick – making your living room feel vibrant as well as snug.
If you feel gunmetal is too strong for all-over colour, use a paler grey on your walls and add depth to your scheme by adding a darker shade on your doors, window frames or other architectural details.
