      It can be differentIf you don’t feel that full-on matching walls and woodwork will create the look you’re after, but you still want to soften the edges where the wood and plaster meet, try this technique. Use two shades from opposite ends of the same colour card – by choosing two tonally connected hues, you create definition but not total separation, lending your backdrop a calmer, less formal style. When creating this effect, go for neutrals, whether it’s off-whites, pastels or sludgy shades, rather than stronger colours.

      The stairs leading from the entrance up to the flat turn at a small landing. ‘It has a massive window,’ says Thott, who decided to paint the frame and staircase a dark grey. ‘The colour emphasises the size of the window,’ she says. ‘Now when you look up from the entrance and see this little space with the chairs and the huge window, it has a certain wow factor, but also looks welcoming.’ The little vintage wall-mounted desk was a clerk’s desk in the Houses of Parliament.Chair by Otto Wagner, vintage.
