    Wow I love all of these colours. We picked what I would describe has a French blue in the lounge, works well but I love the grey colour.

    I’m a white walls type but do love to admire these subtle yet gutsy tones!

    I love these whispery finishes ….. So un taxing on eye and spirit and absolutely enhancing of the rooms

    I wish I was more adventurous with colour. I love the look but am always worried it will not look good so inevitably stick to neutrals to be safe.

    The colors are nice, variations on the primary colors: red, blue and yellow. I like that they softened the tones so much. Love the pink, especially because it is unexpected to see it in a rustic room. Apart from the pink room, are those mottled finishes? Sponged or ragged or something? I seriously want the arches in that last room. Spectacular.
