08 Apr Could a Feature Wall Up Your Style Credentials?
These days a beautiful home is as much a sign of a stylish individual as the clothes that they wear, and one of the biggest trends in home decorating over the last few years has been feature walls. Whether it’s a punchy turquoise in the living room or a pink that pops for your little princess, a feature wall is the perfect way to create a room that really wows.
If it’s impact that you’re after, consider one wall in a bold colour and no colour at all on the rest of the walls. You can then add accents, such as furniture and art, to complement the colour of your feature wall without overwhelming the room – it will look pulled together and funky.
In the same way, a room that’s painted entirely in a bold colour like turquoise can look striking with a feature wall that’s totally white – you can choose white furnishings to create much the same effect, with a more minimalist twist.
The other advantage of a white wall in an otherwise boldly painted room is that it creates the illusion of space. Too much colour can make a room feel small, but even just one white wall can help to open the space back up again, particularly if it’s a wall with a window.
Patterned wallpapers can be a great way to have a more subdued feature wall in your home; choose a muted colour for the walls and a coordinating wallpaper to add interest – it’s perfect for a bedroom where muted colours and cool tones are the best way to create a really relaxing environment.
If you’re thinking of adding a feature wall to your home when you redecorate, it’s worth calling in the professional painters and decorators. They’ll be able to advise on colours and ensure you get a great finish on a tricky job.
