When considering the design, and decoration direction of a space, I like to select a piece of art, or even a furniture piece, as the starting point to build on. For this project we had both a piece of art, and a furniture piece – the bedhead.
The artwork is a beautiful water-colour painting that has been in the family for generations – but had previously been hidden in a space that was not very visible. When I saw it – the colours, and the story the painting was sharing really “spoke” to me, and set the mood, and the design and decor direction we ultimately took – we called it – romantic nostalgia.
The bed head on its own, against the dark wall, made the space feel heavy and dark…so we chose a magnificent bold floral wallpaper – drawing on colour inspiration from the painting – to help create a focal point behind the bed, and also add a layer of interest.
Feature walls are a simple yet high impact way to transform any room in your home.
Feature walls provide a canvas for trying out a colour or a design on a small scale that you would never go for on a larger one. For this reason, feature walls can be little blasts of colour, pattern, sheen and shine, that can bring a truly individual style to any room in your home.
Paint and wallpaper are the most popular and simpler choices for creating a feature wall. Go for contrasting colours and bold designs for impact, or toning shades and muted patterns for a gentler approach. Pick out any featured colours and include them in soft furnishings or accessories so that the feature wall is part of a cohesive design scheme.
The joy of a feature wall is that you can try out wallpapers, paints, finishes and accessories that might normally be outside your budget, because you are only buying small quantities.
