1. Test your theory
Paint a small board with a test shade and see how different light affects the tone and mood.
2. Inject colour
Select neutral tones for your larger items of furniture, then introduce details of colour through smaller accessories.
3. Consider the ambience
Fill the room with lamps, and refrain from switching on your downlights.
4. Invest in the real thing
Appreciate the creative integrity of designers and their process of bringing original, iconic pieces into this world.
5. Splash out on sheets
We spend so much time in our beds, it ’s worth spending money on quality bed linen.
