Glaciers, Arctic lakes and the Night Kings cold, electric eyes in Game of Thrones. Blue is a colour we particularly associate with plummeting temperatures and icy wastes, and as a result we were wary of using it in our homes.

Contrast too, is a good way to bring out a blue. "Generally speaking, blue loves contrast," agrees Amy. The sharp juxtapositioning of cobalt paintwork with white trim and architraves is a classic.

This instant pop of color will brighten and re-energize any room! It’s amazing how something so simple as a coat of colorful paint can instantly energize and transform your space. This built-in bookcase would be simple and ordinary without the bright blue interior.

Bookcases are an ideal place to start because you don’t need to paint a large area. Other fun places to add a pop of color include painting fireplace mantels, the insides of closets, hallways and ceilings
