Inspired by wallpaper, created with paint

Sue wanted a feature in her home one with real impact. She chose a small wall and decided to make it appear bigger she would paint it with vertical or horizontal stripes.

Inspired by wallpaper, created with paint

Having seen an incredibly expensive English wallpaper in the desired colourways, Sue decided to recreate the look with paint. She used Resene SpaceCote Flat in Resene Regent Grey and Resene Bastille to paint contrasting stripes, achieving the feature wall at a quarter of the cost of the wallpaper. The hardest part was measuring and marking up, but the end result was well worth the effort.
