Paint techniques that will blow your mind

It is so refreshing to see that the trend setters have taken paint techniques to a whole new level. It’s still the quickest way to transform a room and a way for you to put your personal stamp on your interior.

I have found a few that I’m sure will inspire.

Rainbow walls

Fun and playful! Turn your walls into a kaleidoscope of color with this ombre effect or simple stripes.

Uneven strokes

Paint a section in a bold color with uneven brush strokes to create an artistic effect with just the right amount of pop!

Loft style 

If you are more drawn to a somber palette, opt for tones of grey and white in uneven strokes.

Go graphic

Break up a wall with bold geometric shapes in different tones of grey.

Pretty patterns

Introduce subtle pattern with color by stenciling a modern geometric pattern on your wall. It adds texture and a second layer that create visual interest.

We tend to be a bit conservative when it comes to color but once you have gone wild on a wall you will never look back. It’s a bit like a hair cut … remember you can always paint over it again like you can always let your hair grow.

Happy styling,

  1. Love the yellow and white uneven strokes! And it works! Decided to paint a 3m high wall navy blue the other day….only had half an hour before the boys came home. After one coat and unravelled edges I decided to stop A. because I liked it too much… a giant colour field painting alla Mark Rothco! B. it was soo easy C. was it worth taking the risk painting the second coat with one 2 year old and one 4 year old running around? Turned out not to be. 🙂
