The textured timber panelling in this Brisbane home is the perfect partner for the peppermint green colour used throughout. When combined with the old-school linoleum flooring, a mish mash of vintage furniture and op shop treasures, the pastel tones in this bright dining room bring to life a laid-back, summery, beach-shack feel.

Dulux Spring Burst Half and White Watsonia are a great combination to try.

This family home in Melbourne is the perfect example of how bold colour can be used to enliven even the most traditional Victorian home. The exterior brickwork is striking in deep charcoal, whilst the vivid fire-engine red door provides an unexpected burst of colour. As this happens, this is actually the back door - the perfect place to experiment with brave hues if you're not quite confident enough to make this kind of statement for all the world to see!

Dulux Ito and Hot Lips are a great combination to try.

This home in the country town of Kyneton uses a very deep charcoal tone to dramatic effect in the dining room. A dark wall treatment is always an effective backdrop for framed artwork and other decorative wall-mounted elements. In this case though it's the yellow accents that really sing - the vintage dining chairs and low-hanging pendant lamp are the perfect finishing touch.

Dulux Oolong and Vivid White are a perfect combination to try.
