WALLS CAN TRANSFORM YOUR ROOM







A wall is a solid structure that defines and protects an area as well as creating privacy. Most commonly, a wall delineates a building and supports its superstructure. And most important a wall can determine the style or design of a room. It can be painted, wallpapered, or paneled. Whatever you decide to do, your walls should transform your room to create an interior that is balanced, sophisticated and liveable.




First you want to step back and think about the overall design you want to portray for whichever room you are painting or wallpapering. Your walls can determine the overall feel of your room and influence the moods of its occupants. (refer to my previous post: Colors Have a Personality of Their Own).












No matter what medium you use, always ask yourself, “can I live with this color everyday?”


A fresh coat of paint is the easiest way to make a change at home but choosing a color palette can be daunting and, at times, confusing.
 It's no secret that color can either make or break a design.
When the color's right, it can: enhance feelings of health and wellbeing, make your space feel warmer or cooler, or make your space feel larger or cozier. From calming taupe to dramatic contrast combinations, keep in mind neutral colors enhance any room's style. Neutrals, whiteS and pastels will help make your room feel more spacious, while darker colors will feel warmer and should be used in larger spaces.






Give emphasis to a neutral room by adding a few smart hits of color.
Accent walls can be a powerful design choice in your home. They break up the traditional look of having four walls that are painted the same color. They draw your eye to a particular part of the room. And they give you a chance to play around with color in your house in a new way.
A brightly-colored wall should only be added to a room where the other three walls are white or neutral. Or, you can also use a darker shade in the same color family (as the lighter other walls) to pull attention to one wall or area. (refer to my previous post: Welcome Pops of Color).






Instead of adding artwork to your wall add decorative molding for an updated look.
You can also use wallpaper for either texture or on one wall to replace art work (especially if you are on a budget).

Always remember: “less is more”.
