Painting shutters in the same colour as the walls gives a seamless look

the STYLE RULES Mix deep blue-green tones and chic shapes Mid-century style goes super-sleek with this lush, colour-saturated style. CHOOSE SQUARED SHAPES It’s a smart look, so go for sleek, tuxedo-style sofas and cube shelving. Round or curved occasional tables will soften all the sharp corners.

USE WHITE AS AN ACCENT With deep turquoise on the walls, you’ll need some hits of bright white for light relief. GO LUXE ON FINISHES Ramp up the glam factor with silky velvet on upholstery and cushions, high-gloss surfaces and glossy blue glassware.
