One of the major aspects of interior designing is the paint and art on the walls of the rooms. Wall art and paint can enhance the entire appearance and add aesthetic appeal to one’s home. These parts of interior design allow one to express their lifestyle, personality and be creative with their household.
Although wall paint and wall art might seem to be at the bottom of the interior designing checklist, here are some ways that wall paints can bring life back into a house.
Elevating an ordinary wall
A neutral colour throughout the entire house becomes dull and monotonous. Adding some colour on the walls can transform an ordinary and plain living space into a unique and lively part of the household. It adds vibrancy, movement and a pop of colour, adding dimension to one’s home.
Painting a mural is one way to transform a wall. Being confined to four walls, a mural can transport one to another place. Be it hand-painted or as a wall covering, the motif will make a big impact in making a house a home.
Brings the entire room together
Wall decor with a splash of colour and creativity, can give a house a holistic appearance. Apart from using neutral colours, the modern and fragmented design achieved from using different yet complementary colours and shades, add movement and a sense of wholeness to the room. Such designs can highlight the centre-piece of the room and later become a lovely topic of conversation when entertaining guests.
Accentuates wall accessories
Wall hangings, paintings, decorative mirrors, wall lamps and such are decorative items that add freshness and liveliness. However, these wall accessories need to be complemented with the proper wall colour. The right wall colour can add incredible effects and assist the accessories to fit into the room rather than overwhelming it. Rather than taking away from the room’s beauty, the wall hangings along with a harmonising background, add flair.
Uplifts the mood
Being surrounded by mundane and static colours often leaves one feeling trapped, depressed and dull. A dash of colour never does any harm but only creates dynamic movements for the mind. Adding some subtle hues to the walls cater to improving one’s mood and attitude and also serve as a recreational and mental rejuvenating space. Additionally, vibrant, bright or even a soothing pastel wall paint can be the perfect setting for creating memories, spending time with family and friends and filling the home with love and warmth.
By assessing and identifying the desired aesthetic of a room, a colour to complement the ambiance can alter the overall essence of the room. Starting from the decorative items and the lighting to the room purpose and utility, the colour palette of the walls can accentuate all. Wall paint and home decor has become an integral part of interior design which can enhance and complete the look of the entire house. It makes one’s home more welcoming, embracing and ready to house all memories and joy.
