AUSTRALIAN PAINTERS & REPAIRERS PTY LTD PRESENTS Things to think about when choosing colours and creating a feature wall . . .

Slide 2: 

A feature wall can do many things for a room so long as it is used in combination with the right colour scheme. There are hundreds of different combinations but first you need to decide what look or style you prefer; while also taking into consideration the results you are trying to achieve.

Slide 3: 

Think about things such as whether you are trying to make the room feel more spacious, open and fresh. In this instance light and bright is the way to go. On the other hand it could be a large empty room which you would like to feel warm and cosy. A richer deeper colour such as plum, burgundy or chocolate would work well with a still warm, but lighter shade like beige or tan. Another thought should be which room it is that you are repainting; is it a bedroom, kitchen, lounge or study? Perhaps it is a children's play room. Also keep in mind whether your colour choice will tie in with the furnishings you already have.

Slide 4: 

Once you have made a decision on what it is you are looking for as far as design and results, you then will need to choose your colour scheme. Most paint suppliers will have sample colour cards, so mix and match until you are content with your choice. Keep it simple, too many different colours can be busy and overpowering. If you are having a feature wall you will need a base colour for all the other walls and then a more prominent colour for the feature wall; as was in the example above, beige being the base colour with chocolate as the feature.

Slide 5: 

Whatever you decide it needs to be functional, aesthetically pleasing and something you are prepared to live with; so stick to the basics, keep it simple and choose wisely. Good luck!
