This stunning shade of yellow was originally showcased by Crown as an inspiring way to bring your home up to date for spring. But who says bright colours are only for the warmer months? This creamy yellow is a brilliant way to spread colour and light around your kitchen or bedroom whatever the weather.

If you want to keep things bright but are looking for a something a bit more subtle, Dulux’s Willow Tree could be for you. This is one of those paint colours that seem to be able to achieve everything – it’s both stylish and subtle, and fresh and light. Particularly beautiful when paired with creams and dark wood, this shade could be a great colour to open up your hallway.

4. Denim Drift – Dulux

This beautiful grey-blue was named Dulux’s 2017 Colour of the Year and rightly so. Its muted tones inject colour into a space without dominating it – it’s brilliant if you want to create a soothing but stylish effect. Although it’s one of the more subtle paint colours in this list, it could never be described as boring.

5. Blue Cool Britannia – Graham & Brown

If a lighter blue is more your bag, try Graham & Brown’s Cool Britannia. Like Denim Drift, it’s a stylish grey-blue, but this shade will lift your interiors and make them feel open and airy. Perfect for any room of your home, this chic shade stands out from other paint colours as a serious bargain.
