Paint transforms these walls in quite different ways.
Board and batten walls are on trend but you don’t need building skills to create the look. Just do it with paint. This wall was masked up and painted in Resene Dusted Blue with Resene New Denim Blue ‘battens’ to mimic the look. The chairs are also in these colours as well as Resene Scandi. The floor is in Resene Colorwood Greywash.
Another way to create a traditionally elegant wall is to use skirting board and ceiling roses to create these decorative panels. Fixed straight to the Resene Merino wall, they are painted in Resene Quarter Black White and Resene Alabaster, and used to showcase the Ascend collection of fabrics from James Dunlop.
Why do it straight when you can do it quirky? This rough dado wall division was done with a paint roller, using it horizontally to create the broken edge. The dark blue paint on the lower part of the wall is Resene Madison and on the top is Resene Merino. The setting was created to showcase James Dunlop’s recently launched Kyoto range of fabrics.
