Adding eye-catching wall paint colors to a living space can instantly elevate its ambience, but selecting one that works well with both furniture and decor in your home is crucial for success.
Test out bolder looks in smaller spaces like a powder room or hallway to experiment without making an unwise commitment to an entire room. Plus, this gives you an opportunity to show off your unique style while trying out paint hues that might not work elsewhere in your home.
1. Geometric Patterns
Geometric shapes provide the basis of many creative paint patterns. These include lines, triangles, circles, squares and rectangles arranged into combinations that form unique designs with various symbolic meanings or meanings – for instance the geometric design used to make the body of a unicorn featuring white triangles formed into its body by red lines adding some extra color into its design.
Diagonal geometric patterns are another great choice to add an eye-catching element to any wall space. Furthermore, diagonals work especially well when applied in black and white designs to add an eye-catching appeal and an eye-catching bold feel to any image.
Geometric shapes can also be utilized by creating harlequin patterns with geometric forms. These patterns look fantastic in any shade – neutral or vibrant alike! This look works well in bedrooms, dining rooms or living spaces with open floor plans.
2. Floral Patterns
Floral patterns possess a timeless, classic beauty that can be quite captivating. Their designs can evoke feelings of calm and serenity while being versatile enough for use across many styles – cottage style to bohemian wanderlust – there is sure to be one to fit.
Stencils are an easy and popular way to incorporate floral patterns into your home, but there are other methods. A bolder way is painting an entire wall with floral designs like a mural. This option works particularly well in bedrooms that tend to be more personal spaces such as bedrooms; dining or living rooms may be good candidates as well.
If you want a less intense floral motif, try painting an accent piece or cabinet in a floral motif instead of going for the full floral look. This idea works particularly well in areas that are rarely visited such as half baths.
Wall-to-wall stripes can have an immediate effect on any room’s style, creating an eye-catching and unique effect that works across many spaces. From classic looks such as white or gray horizontal stripes to eye-catching hues like blue stripes – adding stripes is an engaging paint idea that can transform spaces from the mundane to extraordinary!
If you’re new to painting unique colors and patterns, start small – perhaps in the half bath or mudroom – where you can experiment with various looks without making commitments in every room of the home. This way, you can test out various looks without going all-in on one look!
If you want an even bolder wall paint design, try creating a harlequin pattern. This geometric diamond shape pattern creates an eye-catching contrast while remaining elegant and sophisticated. To achieve this look, start with a light base color before using painter’s tape to make horizontal stripes of light color before painting every other stripe with darker hues.
Lettering is an art form in which each letter stroke acts as an illustration. This differs from typography, which focuses on specific font styles and layouts; lettering artists frequently experiment with ligatures, flourishes and ornaments to produce unique stylized pieces that stand out. Lettering can be completed either manually or digitally – popular choices in the design world for creating logos and brand identities.
Lettering can be daunting at first, so an excellent way to start practicing lettering is using stencils, as shown above. Once you get your bearings you can also try freehand drawing or painting letters directly onto cardboard – you might also try adding personalized details such as your child’s name on their bedroom wall or inspirational phrases in your kitchen for added interest!
Make an impactful statement with paint by selecting an accent wall in a darker hue than the rest of the room, such as an entryway, home office or library. It will certainly stand out!
