Dull plain walls often fail to appeal to both the guest and the people living in the house. What better way to spruce up the house and its interior than infuse some bright and breezy colors. Designer homes can be created with just few paints and brushes. Play with colors and break the monotony to give your house a new breath of life.
Here are some techniques that will transform your house from ordinary to exquisite.
1. Accent wall
The simplest and most powerful way to give your room a new breath of life is to use accent wall painting technique. This involves painting a single wall of a room differently from the other three, to make it more prominent. Mostly accent walls will have bolder and brighter shades of color than the other walls. Some can even have difference in terms of design and texture. Wall papers can also be used for this purpose. This is a great way to break the usual monotony and draw attention to a particular part of the room. There is also a danger of overdoing it. The best way to go ahead with this technique is to use a bright color on the accent wall and use a much lighter shade of the same color on the remaining walls.
2. Color blocks
This is indeed a super fun way of adding lots of color and energy to your room. It can be extremely tricky too as it involves the use of a host of bold, bright and funky colors. Plan ahead and do it with lot of care, if not it can look too garish. To get this look right, complementary colors from the color wheel has to be chosen which will enhance the contrast and jazz up your room. This works particularly well for kids room. Lot of bright colors can sometimes look tacky so adding some neutral colors to tone it down will be a good idea.
3. Paint moldings
Another great way to add color will be to paint the moldings in the room with a nice contrasting color.
4. Colorful furniture
Painting walls is not the only way to create a room with color burst. This great look can also be accomplished by using an exquisite bright colored statement furniture or a multi hued art work or even an elegant piece of light fittings in colorful shades.
