What is a feature wall? It started as a wall/part of the wall/two walls painted in different/contrast colour than the rest of the room.
Is that all? Not to me. I feel that the name ‘feature wall’ cannot be used for only that described above. Why? Because there are so much more you can do to your space. So many more ways to make that FEATURE wall really stand out.
Murals/chalkboard/geometric stencils/your own art/ombre paint/timber art/photo wall, etc.
In this post I will try to show some examples.
No hard edges. A bit more than half wall soft painted bright lemon yellow.
In fact, it doesn’t even have to different colour. If you prefer monochrome – just add a little bit of dynamic by including different texture/matt vs gloss.
Black stone feature wall is good example of contrast colour AND texture. Though beware – it needs space: the bigger the stone/wood tiles – the bigger the room must be. Otherwise you’ll get lost in scale.
Dreamy cloud wallpaper in neutral bedroom.
Don’t want to touch the walls? No problem – paint the inside of the bookshelf/display. A pop of colour will brighten the room.
This uniqueness was achieved by applying a rust activator to a reactive metallic paint.
Black is the perfect background for the artwork.
Painting vertical stripes in different shades: simple solution for a very modern look!
Shimmer ans shine! This accent wall reflects the light perfectly and is perfect for a small windowless room.
This one is great for a kids room. Can be a weekend’s project – lots of preparation, but fun and easily-manageable otherwise.
Backboard-paint wall. And every day it can be different drawing or writing. Surprise yourself!
A wall made of recycled wine crates? Why not!
Another very inexpensive, but impressive (and also one of my favourite) way to dress your wall.
Three different takes on Ombre wall. It can be very artistic, very modern, very chic or playful – you choose!
Watercolour wall. Unique and abstract painting made by dipping paintbrush to the water.
Flying bird stickers. This wall definitely catches the eye.
