Hot Paint Colour: Heathered Grey

Suited to intimate bedrooms or even kitchen cabinets, this purple-tinged grey works best with a light ceiling or floor.

Less Gothic than 2011's blue-black, Farrow & Ball's Down Pipe (26) is a softer, more versatile grey with an innate cosiness, like the walls of an old stone cottage.

ACCENT FOR ACCESSORIES Muted gold picture frames and upholstery.

CLASSIC TRIM Twinkle in Her Eyes (P5163-34D), Para Paints

BOLD TRIM Pelt (254), Farrow & Ball
