Have you ever heard the expression “if these walls could talk”? If you’re decorating a home, walls do talk. They say a lot about you. That’s because paints and wallpapers are two little touches that make a huge impact on the overall impression of your home.
A fresh coat of paint is one of the best investments you can make in your home. Not only is it one of the cheapest ways to give any space a total makeover, but it is also super easy and commitment free. If you have been living with white walls or outdated colors that you dread, there is no reason not to pick up a brush and lather those walls in a trendy new color.
A fresh coat of color can bring a fresh perspective to your home. Bold color choices can also cut down on the cost of furniture and accessories, since a really striking color on the wall can eliminate the need to add much else to a room. In other words, let your walls talk.
Paint isn’t the only way to transform a wall. Wallpaper has gotten a bad rap in recent decades. But the truth is, modern wallpaper has some amazing designs and can bring a lot of style and personality into your home. It is definitely having a resurgence in popularity today, as some of the top interior designers in the industry are finding a new appreciation for it.
If you want to add a splash of color to a room, but don’t feel comfortable with making a full commitment, there are some ways to go half-way when it comes to taking the painting plunge. Selecting just one wall from a room and painting it a color is a fun way to add a festive touch.
With the other walls in the room left white, this creates a huge focal point for the room. If you are left confounded about which color of the rainbow to choose, you should know that there really is no wrong choice.
All of the old theories of wall color have pretty much gone out the window in recent years. A shade of vibrant lime green is just as appropriate for a living room as demure red. The keywords are fun and imagination.
And remember: if you are unhappy with the finished look, all it takes is a can of white base and you will never remember your color choice blunder again.
Similarly, wallpaper can be applied to only one wall of a room in order to create a subtle effect. Fun wallpaper patterns like jungle themes, banana leaves, or oversized lotus flowers can add a tropical touch that turns any space into your own private exotic oasis.
You spend a lot of time between four walls, why not make those walls fun? Add a splash of color to your home design today!
