 When less colour can achieve more.
Great Hall
Great Hall, Syon House
Architect Robert Adam (1728-1792)

Mouldings do not require a lot of colour to show their details. Sometimes less is more as in the case
here. The pattern of the floor is reflected in the ceiling. The tones of  colour do not compete for attention but are relaxing and soft. Some would say cold but the "busy' floor takes center stage here.
