4 colour ideas to brighten up your home this coming spring


Here are four easy ideas that will transform any space:

Make your space exciting by painting a two-toned wall

Two-toned walls add dimension to your space, and you can have both of your favourite colours without having to compromise. You could even do them yourself instead of asking for professional help and save costs. The most important thing is to choose colours that complement each other; otherwise the entire concept of two-toned walls won’t make sense. You could always choose two neutral colours in order to stay on the safe side, and enrich the look with playful curtains, bold pillows, or other interesting accents.

Try something different by including horizontal or vertical stripes

Stripes are a great decorative painting technique and will give your blank wall personality. Much like clothes horizontal stripes make a room appear more spacious; vertical stripes make the ceiling appear higher.

Introduce interesting shapes

Give life to your wall by creating the oval shape effect that will make your wall stand out and give the space a great focal point. Oval painting is also great for nursery spaces and kid-friendly, playful spaces, so mommies, get painting!

Painting blurred lines

Add a personal touch to your home and create a unique look for your family and friends to admire with the blurred stripe effect that will add a soft and textured look to your walls.
