There’s no better fuel for the imagination than food, especially when it inspires delectable colour schemes perfect for your dining and eating areas. Studies have shown that colours typically found on our plates stimulate the appetite and help to aid digestion – think peppery red, lime green and sorbet yellow.

If hot, bright shades aren’t your thing, delve into the spice cabinet and take inspiration from shades of golden cinnamon, blue-green rosemary and nutmeg. Warm, buttery hues not only foster good feelings of hearth and home, they create a cosy, inviting atmosphere that encourages the family to reconnect – over good food, of course.
