6 Paint Dilemmas: Solved (by an Expert)

“I am”, said my friend and fellow journalist, Claire, “actually losing sleep over paint samples.” She was 8 months pregnant, with a toddler and a job clamouring for attention, in the throes of moving and doing up her new flat. I knew exactly what – or rather who – she needed: our favourite interiors guru Laura Stephens, here to answer every one of her – and your – paint dilemmas.
