8 ways to get creative with paint effects

Paint effects are making a splash in interiors. Abstract murals, solid stripes and half-painted rooms can instantly transform a room (if you’re handy with a paintbrush). Check out our round-up of 8 ways to get creative with paint – and how to get the look with FEATHR – no artistic skills required.

 

Bold brushwork

If you’re handy with a paintbrush, experimenting with long, expressive strokes will add drama to a room and freshen up a space. 2 lovely gays’ living room is a great example of this modern paint effect, but you can also get the look in an instant with our Vigor Wallpaper.

Ombré

Faded up or down, an ombré effect wall is pretty versatile intoduction to paint effects – it highlights an accent colour without overwhelming a small space. DIY novices beware – an expert gradient can be tricky to achieve.

Twice as nice

Can’t decide whether to paint your room pink or grey? Paint it both! This effect works well with two contrasting colours that will balance a room.

Immerse yourself in nature

This green woodland scene is perfect for those homes with not so many windows, and the expressionistic style of the mural has a slightly dreamlike quality.

Make a splash

Choose one colour as your focus and experiment with brush strokes and application techniques, in similar or complementary hues. Or, leave it to the pro with Aoi Yoshizawa’s Plato wallpaper. All you need to do is hang the wallpaper, step back and admire.

Sunset scenery

If you don’t have a view of an open horizon, basking in the soft glow of a sunset each evening, you don’t have to miss out – why not make your own? Minimalist, Scandinavian style furniture works well to maximise the effect of the wall here.
