Revitalise a vignetteEvery single element in this seating area helps to create a beautiful vignette. Imagine the picture without the teal backdrop – it would totally lose its impact. By choosing such a bold colour, the designers have given the old artwork a contemporary twist. The wooden bench and cushions are the finishing touch to offset the blue surface with interesting shades of umber.Discover terracotta cushions and more gorgeous textiles in the Houzz Shop

Make the most of scaleIf you’ve inherited a large artwork, show it off by giving it pride of place on a plain wall. Using a vivid colour will really lift the piece and make a feature of it. This painting could have looked quite formal on a neutral wall, but the bright teal behind gives it a contemporary twist.Be brave with your colour choice and perhaps pick out a hue that appears in the painting. These homeowners have added to the gallery effect by placing a wall light above the canvas.

Pick the right shadeThe painting says traditional portrait, but the painted backdrop lets you know this is a modern scheme. The sky blue is natural enough to work with the painting and stately upholstery, but also ticks the box for on-trend teals. Imagine this space with a plain white wall and you’ll appreciate how the colour lends real impact and energy.See more bold colour schemes

Introduce additional lightsSubtle illumination is key to a cosy room, so why not pick out your pictures with dedicated lights that will also add to the atmosphere? Lights like this traditionally highlight classic paintings, but there’s no reason you can’t illuminate modern art, too – there are plenty of slim chrome picture lights on the market that would do the job nicely.

Henriette was attracted by the property’s scale and the fact that nearly all the rooms have large windows. The entrance hall, however, is an exception. ‘There’s very little natural light in this part of the house and it’s quite compact,’ she says. She has still gone for a bold colour, though. ‘I believe small, dark spaces actually need stronger colours and definition. It’s a complete misconception they should be painted white,’ she says. ‘The bold colour here gives this space a real purpose. Everyone loves it when they come into the house.’ The wall paint is by Little Greene. The bench is an antique from Henriette’s grandmother’s house in Vienna that she had reupholstered in Ralph Lauren fabric.
