Dulux Companion is the perfect deep charcoal grey, for a moody, masculine interior. It’s the ideal backdrop for an intimate space often inhabited in the evenings, such as bedrooms and TV rooms. Companion also presents an ideal background for salon-hung artwork, wall mounted lighting and other decorative elements. It’s amazing the transformation that can be achieved in a space simply by using a dark wall treatment, it adds a depth and richness that white walls simply can’t compete with!
