Feature walls don’t have to be floor to ceiling affairs.
Why not pick a bold colour that you love or, like we have here, match it to a key piece of furniture and create a block of beautiful colour? For this lounge, stylist Megan Harrison-Turner has picked Resene Hot Toddy, a delicious whisky gold, as a colour to match this luxe Me and My Trend sofa. Set against a wall painted in Resene Delta, the look is a little bit retro with a whole lot of glam.
Says stylist Megan Harrison-Turner: “Some people talk about changing a room in a weekend – here, you can change a room in an afternoon by simply painting a bold block of colour. No ladder required. It’s 70s inspired but using modern colours. And while being quite minimal, it still has an instant impact.”
