Purple has the noble power to divide and conquer. Beloved by children, yet detested by many adults, it’s best used in hallways or in pass-through spaces, and even then it works magnificently when broken up. Try a stripe in a complementary shade, a busy collections of assorted photo frames, or some cleverly-chosen wallstickers, such as these oversized Russian doll decals (from €38 each at www.wallstickers.ie). For paint, Try Witchy Woo from the Crown Paints Colourmix Collection, www.crownpaints.ie.
