4. Inchyra Blue

Inchyra Blue is an entirely unique shade. It was inspired by the Scottish skies, so it naturally has a murky undertone. 

It’s the ideal colour if you’re wanting something unique but that doesn’t make too much of a statement. Pair with bright pops of coral to make the room sing.

Borrowed Light is the perfect name for this delicate blue paint colour. It’s so pale that it can often look like an off-white shade, but not to worry, it is definitely blue.

17. Shaded White & Old White

To create a contrast, you don’t have to have two completely different shades. Be subtle with your two-toning and choose two shades of white that complement each other.

We recommend painting the walls in one shade and then painting the ceiling and woodwork in another.

Colours used:

Shadow White

Old White

18. Off-Black & Cornforth White

Black and white is a monochromatic scheme that never fails to impress. Be creative with your dining room design and paint opposing walls in opposing shades.

Placing a large mirror in your dining room will bounce light around the room and make the space feel bigger than it is.
