Recreate a Parisian look
Timeless, understated and effortlessly sophisticated – is there anything more elegant than Parisian style? Recreating this look is easy and, contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a spacious apartment or period features to make it work.
Layer different shades of off-white
The secret to this sensual style lies in the subtle colour palette of off-whites. Try painting your walls in almond white and your ceiling in cotton white to create layers of interest in the room.
If you do have a home with architectural details, such as cornicing, skirtings and alcoves, you may like to highlight these with a slightly different hue of white, such as parchment white.
Add an explosion of colour
This classic colour scheme is the perfect backdrop for a few bold accents. Think rich, warm hues like burgundy, dusky pink and sherbet orange – these will pop out against the white background and add a feeling of warmth to the room.
