Create an impressive scene in the various rooms of your home with an eye-catching feature wall.
Add some luxe with marble
To get the luxurious look, you can’t go wrong with marble. Available in matte or polished, the large-format Open Luce Lev tiles from Hafary offer dramatic veins that bring energy to a space. These easy-to-match tiles work with anything from a simple console to a faux fireplace. To amp things up, let the wall stand out by decking the rest of the space out in dark hues.
Murals let you create your favourite scene
Walls are the perfect canvas for the artistic soul. And if you have invested in a brick feature wall for your home, there are ways to showcase your own creative eye. One of them is by bringing a surprising contrast to rough-hewn brick walls with floral artwork! With paint, you can easily create a wholly fresh look with your original work of art.
Get bold with concrete
From its walls to floors, this apartment embraces concrete finishes. Can’t get enough of concrete? Consider a wall with uniform lines and patterns like these. They bring about a strong sense of symmetry, as well as texture that livens up other concrete-like surfaces. Concrete is also highly versatile. It can function as a backdrop to many interior design styles.
Bring nature indoors with botanical prints
Touches of nature often breathe life into interiors. The organic shapes juxtapose well with the rigorous lines of modern furniture or the curves of classical furniture. Bold and often colourful, botanical wallcoverings can be worked into most interior design styles too. As shown here, they can be especially effective in a vintage-inspired dining room. A rule of thumb is to match the colour of the furniture with the wallcovering.
Add a splash of colour for a visual punch
Tired of that blank wall in the bedroom? Painting it a bold colour is an easy way to transform its look. There’s no need to paint the entire wall though. All it takes is to play with a geometric shape – and an oversized one at that. This is a fitting opportunity to rope in the kids so that it becomes a project they can take pride in as well. If you’re feeling adventurous, try out a combination of shapes or a complex one like a star.
Use patterns creatively for a spin on the conventional
You can put a spin on wood-like feature walls by working with diagonal lines to create chevron patterns. Use different shades of wood and a sense of irregularity to the lines add vigour to the design. That said this bedroom retains its cosy and restful look, by combining the wall design with an elevated bed area.
