1. The welcoming living room
Dulux Colour of the Year 2018 and its complementary colours create a reassuring mood in your living room, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try some unexpected design ideas. In this living room, a graphic neutral oval broken across two walls adds an eye-catching feature, that’s softened by its organic shape.
2. The snug living room
A darker strip of paint applied to the top of the wall, creates a living room with a sense of sanctuary and warmth. This colour combination mixes earthy tones that work well with natural woods and greenery and creates a wonderful cosy atmosphere.

3. The dynamic living room
The strong vertical lines of contrasting tones in this energetic colour scheme help make the room feel larger. Painting the ceiling and one main wall in the same neutral tone create a sense of space and contrasts with the bolder tones. The overall feel is one of vibrancy and energy.

4. The family living room
Combining a cool blue shade with the heather toned warm neutral Heart Wood, strikes the perfect balance between a fresh and cosy look. This is the ideal palette for large, busy families that need an easy, welcoming feel for their living room.
Great tip: for a modern take on a two-tone wall, create a colour break near the ceiling.
