Great article ! It is so interesting to see the different highlights and shades that can be achieved with paint alone. I am personally a big fan of the use of the two contrasting colours ( join the dots ). Salmon pink and white are indeed a lovely combination, it also makes the ceiling look higher.

Some great ideas here. Love the colour contrasts, half & half and best of all mixing old ideas with new design. Bravo!

Join the dots - I have a loft conversion which is all angles and is currently just white. I wanted to bring in a softer colour but didn't have a clue where the walls ended and the ceiling began. Now I've got a better idea of what to do.
