Add tranquillity to your living room by using soothing colours found in nature. Set a calming base, like a deep blue, for a backdrop and create an overlay of cosy circles to add visual interest to a feature wall. Use circles in a uniformed way to bring calmness to a room. Complete the composition by adding some depth and emphasising the deep hues against lighter complementary shades.

To set a laid-back and relaxed mood, paint your walls in cream-based colours that play up the natural light in a room. Use tints of a single colour or similar colours to create a gentle contrast. For a contemporary, minimalist look, arrange shapes sparingly and you can subtly dramatise the arrangement by varying the shape sizes to draw your eye to one focal point in a room.

Set a lively tone in a bedroom by experimenting with multiple solid colours in contrasting shades on a single wall. To further accentuate the hues, separate the shapes with slim, white borders. Daring colour combinations bring vigour and movement to a room, while contrasting colours infuse energy into one another.

Use circular shapes in cheerful colours to instantly add an element of fun to a child's bedroom. A soft colour palette can animate a neutral backdrop while remaining soothing to the eye. Add an illusion of width to a room by overlapping circles across various planes and walls. Extend the pattern to the ceiling for an additional burst of playfulness.
