|Room||Wall colour hue||Room colour mood||Colour palette|
|Bedroom||Pink hues||Bedrooms are places for calm and rest, so cool pinks and blues are well suited to helping you go to bed relaxed and waking up refreshed every morning.||Candy Floss|
|Bathroom||Blue hues||Pick a colour that helps you relax - blue tones are calm and soothing and complement skin tones.||Misty Harbour|
|Kitchen||Yellow hues||Kitchens are often busy spaces and a warm colour such as yellow helps fill the room with playful energy, raises the temperature of the space and inspires.||Zest|
|Dining room||Red hues||Stimulate discussion within a warm friendly atmosphere by decorating your dining room in red tones. Avoid bold reds that are too over-powering as a base.||Show Stopper|
|Living room||Green hues||Add natural green tones to your living room and create a harmonious, restful atmosphere. Greens communicate safety and reassurance.||Spring Sage, Wild Willow|
|Hallway||Natural hues||Going for natural tones is a safe option, colours won't clash and are great for brightening otherwise darker spaces. Add bold accent colours to complement softer hues.||Somerset Cream|
