Home Living : July 14th 2009
2 HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, July 14, 2009 HOMELIVING Feature the right colours Paint & decorate Tony Isgrove Painter, decorator, and president of the Master Painters Association Often when you decide to create a feature wall in your home it canbe exciting, yet a little daunting. There are many different thingsto choose from and so many questions to ask, including: --What colour will best suit my decor? --Whatwall will be best suited for this? --Whattype of finish will I paint on it? Let me help you by guiding you through some of these questions asImayhave a few suggestions which you may not have thought about. Which wall do I paint? Feature walls work best on walls without windows. The glare from the light entering through the window will detract from the effect you are trying to achieve, which is basically a ''wow'' factor. You also maywant to avoid painting your new feature on the wall of the doorway to that room, as this wall is going to be behind you as you walk in and will not be noticed. Generally the best walls to paint are windowless and easily seen when walkingpast the room. What effect will a feature wall have on the room? Dark and light colours play a big role in the appearance of the size and orientation of a room. By paintingadark feature wall in a small room you can close the room in and make it appear tiny. Or open upawall by painting the room with darker colours and makinga light-coloured feature wall to make the room appear to stretch out in thatwall's direction. If this is the effect you are after, the contrast between the colours hasto be significant. Just a few shades darker or lighter will not produce a very effective result. Make sure the colours complement your decor. Sometimes it is agood idea to see which colours you can choose from before deciding whattype of finish you want.
