Grey has been the colour du jour for a while now, and it isn’t going anywhere soon. One fresh way to brighten up subtle, soothing greys is by introducing an eye-popping shade of yellow. A vibrant splash of a zesty shade around a focal point such as the fireplace or an artwork will give your scheme an up-to-date twist.

Expert tip:

The best thing about grey is that it’s so versatile. A soft grey like Modernism makes for a cosy backdrop for showcasing warm and welcoming hues like yellow, coral or copper.
