a classic hallway with purple painted walls

Maybe not a traditional paint or paper choice, purple is rich, regal and opulent and as the seasons turn and nights draw in, we reckon it's time to put it back on the deco agenda.

Above, we're liking this classic hallway treatment. Enlivened by a little Twilight Cinders paint by Dulux, check out the clever way the stair treads have been painted, leaving their middles bare. Smart! Contrast that with white painted woodword and some red blooms and you've got quiet colourpops that even Edwardian houses can confidently carry.
