Want a space that feels calm? Don’t dismiss colour blocking just yet. Go for tones and shades of a similar colour for a subtle variation on the look to install a serene feel to your room.
Use different tones of the same colour to make features of the things that you often overlook. Draw the eye with darker shades against a paler backdrop and consider clever, simple things like a deep band of colour just above the floor level. Our stripe cards will help you find different tones of the same colour, or look at the back of the Dulux Colour Guide to find columns of colours which work beautifully together. Here we've used Azure Sky 2 (window), Azure Sky 6 (wall, top) and Blue Seduction 1 (wall, bottom).
