2.?Feature Wall

3. Paint
It may be the?obvious solution, but don't limit yourself to single shade. Just as the eye does not see colours in isolation, the whole room needs to be considered. This grey-pink pairs well with dark greys and natural finishes. Step back from your wall paint and look for ancillary colours for wood, ceilings and floor before making firm decisions.
