Are you bored of the colour of your walls, but can't muster the strength or find the time to repaint them all? Never fear – there's another way!
By creating a feature wall, you can change the entire dynamic of any room in a quarter of the time it would take to repaint the whole space.
If your walls are currently an uninteresting colour, why not liven things up a bit by splashing a bright and bold hue on your feature wall, such as Resene Blackberry? Using decorative items around the room, such as floor lamps or even curtains that match the colour you choose is a great way to tie the room's decor together.
And, if the area in question is pretty sparse in terms of furnishings and decorations, a feature wall can act like a piece of permanent art.
If you're feeling extra daring, you could paint horizontal or vertical stripes in a slightly darker or lighter shade – the possibilities are endless, and the results will be dramatic.
The colour you choose could also impact how big or small the room looks when you're done, so make sure you keep this in mind. On the whole, a darker feature wall will make the room look smaller, while a lighter one will have the opposite effect.
As the name suggests, this wall – if it isn't already – will become the feature of the room you've chosen to revamp. So, make sure you pick a good one! If, for instance, you're going to repaint a wall in your bedroom, you could choose the one your bedhead rests against.
This is the area of the room where your eye (as well as your head) naturally rests anyway, so you might as well give yourself something beautiful to look at when you come into the room!
