GREEN SHADES Taking cues from the natural world, options in green are becoming deeper, with ones like these (left) working well with warmer tile colours.

1 Amsterdam Green chalk paint, £21.95 for 1ltr, Annie Sloan

2 Zeitgeist eggshell, £42 for 2.5ltr, Craig & Rose

3 Valspar Copenhagen Harbour exterior wood and metal trim, £42 for 2.5ltr, B&Q
