home: made [ painted walls ]

We love the look of colourblocking and using painted coloured walls to zone areas within the home.

It’s a great way to define the use of an area or create separation in a large room when many functions are housed within the same interior.

It can create design and interest, bring colour to a room with out over-pushing a single colour, as well as be an easy update to a room that can be changed and modernised without much trouble. Advantageous for rented properties or temporary abodes.

Ideas of working with paint in colour blocks can include creating a band of colour around the room or painting colour in shapes like squares, triangles, semi circles or arches. It can bring a colour pop behind a piece of furniture, it can bring warmth with a new tone – Especially with the current popular colours; rust, orange, mustard and warm beige tones.

We found some inspirational ideas on Decoist.com
