    Lighten upIf you’re blessed – or perhaps feeling cursed – by original features in your 1930s home, this is a good tip for one of the tricksier details you may be grappling with. That aforementioned dark wood panelling? Here, in this beautiful pre-war house designed by Hannah Brown, it has been replaced and given a fresh, contemporary update with Prussian Blue paint. ‘It harks back to the 1930s feel, but with a modern update,’ says Hannah.Clean white walls and woodwork, a modern stair runner and pale parquet flooring also brighten the interior dramatically without stripping away period character.

    Transform a simple spacePanelling is a great way to add interest and detail to those incidental areas that often lack character. This hallway feels fabulously stylish thanks to sections of panelling painted a bold blue.

    The central staircase originally had very heavy wall panelling, which made the space feel dark and cramped. Painting the area white with a strong blue feature wall opened up the space and brought a more contemporary feel to this frequently used area.
