There’s an extensive choice of Diamond Jubilee-themed buys for your home on offer this year. But if you’d like a more understated take on the celebrations, what about a regal purple for your walls? Teamed with grey, it makes for a sophisticated scheme that will continue to look fabulous long after the bunting has been taken down, and the last cup cakes eaten.
The beautiful Velvet above the dado in this room is part of the 2012 range of paint colours from Wickes, and is teamed with Slate, below the dado.
And while you’re on a royal theme, there’s also a Royal Sapphire shade that will remind you of last year’s big event.
