This is one of the initial and most crucial decisions you make when you start to embellish. Select carefully, and choose colours to suit your lifestyle as well as of course to fit in with your furniture suggestions. There are the neutral colours consisting of whites, beige and also creams, and afterwards there are the wild colourful combinations ranging from great blues to cozy reds and also oranges. There is an opinion available that individuals tire of intense colours extremely promptly. I use intense colours at all times, so I differ. I locate brilliant colours invigorating, but it is an individual option.

A fantastic idea if you can not commit to all your wall surfaces coinciding colour is to work the colour in a different way with thick red stripes. Upright stripes create even more height, horizontal red stripes raise the width. It is so simple, it is simply a matter of painting a great base coat in the colour of your choice and determining the stripes throughout the wall surface with concealing tape to identify the size of the red stripe (I recommend the stripes be also in width). Mask in the areas/stripes where you desire the base coat to be highlighted, and also repaint the various other locations the colour of your choice. For a dramatic impact, black and white on one wall surface looks quite stunning – or for a maritime result – blue as well as white – or for a fresh look – deep yellow as well as white is really rejuvenating as well as gives your area a genuine sunny appearance.


A wonderful and various look for a dining room is, instead of having chairs just the same to match the table, why not have a wooden table in teak wood or oak or any other light wood? The chairs are wood also, however they are painted all various colours eg. red, environment-friendly, orange, yellow, blue, turquoise. There is your dining-room with a distinction – all you require is a vase of brilliant coloured blossoms on your table to complete the look.

Do you have furniture that does not collaborate with your brand-new interior? Can not manage to throw the furniture out? The colour is wrong and also paint does not follow the surface area?

Well, I have the service to this problem. Cover your furniture with neutral coloured hessian textile, allow to dry as well as paint over the hessian with paint. I have actually used white paint in this fashion on old furniture and the quantity of admiring remarks I have actually obtained is unbelievable.

Collection in a Box

Rather than having a wall surface of racks or cupboards to save your books, why not construct separate boxes and make an attribute of them on one wall? Repaint them different colours to work in with your colour scheme.


There are several sizes and shapes for ceiling illumination as well as they are mainly fairly uninteresting. A brilliant method of disguising boring lights is to take a tiny, sawn-off dried out branch as well as lots of little branches. Place them over or around the light suitable (depending structure sustaining the lights), so the light is infiltrating the branches. I have done this over a dining-room table. It gives an excellent environment to the room, looks good and also doesn’t set you back anything!

One more concept for lighting is to add different sorts of textile to lamp shades that require a lift. Use colours in the material to operate in with the colour scheme of the room. Textile can be glued, connected and bound or entirely covering the color.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Mirrors make a tremendous difference in any type of area of your residence. To make a mirror look a little various, glue a great deal of branches on the framework (the twigs can be purchased from craft shops). Completion outcome has a genuine natural feeling, simply by replacing the typical official frame around a mirror.

Wall hangings

Generally, paints are hung on wall surfaces, yet you can accomplish something different by putting your much-loved piece of fabric (to match in with the colours in the space) behind glass in the style of structure of your option. One more option of wall surface hanging is large canvases repainted abstract design, with colours to co-ordinate with the area decoration – or be bold as well as make use of contrasting colours. For something fairly different, what concerning selecting 4 pieces of palm tree husks in similar sizes and play around with a style you like – or you might present one large piece along the wall, parallel to the ground. For a beach adverse effects, adhesive branches and also stays with a huge canvas, bringing components of the natural textures of the coastline and also sand. Repaint a big canvas and also turn it into a clock by adding the clock components. The clock elements can be bought at craft stores.

Bed Heads

We all understand that buying brand-new bed heads is fairly pricey, so my alternative solution is to seek an old door (in your home or from a demolition yard). Lay the door flat, cover it with thick padding and afterwards cover with the material of your choice, preferably a material that has some stretch in it, as this makes it less complicated to handle. The material can be glued or stapled, but I locate stapling is much more safe.

A Very Eccentric Idea

Hot foot it to your neighborhood price cut or variety store as well as pick up numerous pairs of inexpensive rubber bands or flip-flops, or better still ask all your pals if they will certainly provide you their utilized thongs. I make certain they will gladly get rid of them. About 10 to 12 pairs would suffice.

Purchase a canvas – regarding 1 metre x 30cm – place the thongs side by side as well as allow some overhang outside the canvas. When you more than happy with the format, make use of a strong glue to attach them to the canvas. When the adhesive is dry, using a spray gun or stress pack of acrylic paint, spray till all bands are totally covered. I did mine in white, since it suited the motif I was producing in my beach house. It looks incredible on the wall and also certainly has a wow factor! This is some tips for making your interior like a beach home.
