One homeowner’s colour awakening
When Cathy Reuben shifted into her new apartment she was struggling to pick the right colour for her living room walls – until her eyes came to rest on a photograph on her fridge door.
“It was from a recent holiday in Ireland,” she explains. “It showed me in the foreground with lots of beautiful green hills rolling off into the distance behind me.”
“I decided that a similar shade of green would look great in my living room and I found the perfect paint in Dulux’s Colours of the World range. It’s a gorgeous green called Daring Energy from the Energizing Ireland selection, and I absolutely love it. The room feels so fresh and welcoming now.”
