Interior Wall Color Ideas

Changing up the interior wall colors of your home is a way to make a big impact without undertaking a costly remodel. The shades of your wall can invoke feelings, increase productivity, define a room, tie in rogue tile or furniture and create a theme in your space. A bucket of paint gives you a big bang for your buck. It’s just a matter of being able to pick out the perfect shade from all of the colors that are out there.

Wall decorating ideas might include wall stickers or appliqu├ęs. If you want a really dramatic effect you may want to paint directly on your wall. The space can still be sophisticated if you choose a tone on tone pattern. Instead of thinking “Well cherry blossoms are pink and tree trunks are brown” consider what will match with your wall color of choice. You will probably want to go with a neutral color such as taupe, gray or white. Trace the outline onto your wall by using a projector. Then you just have to fill in the lines with paint. This means that anyone can be an artist and you can fit the piece to the exact size of your wall. You won’t even have to worry about shading because a solid color will give a modern art effect.

Art wall ideas are perfect for you if you want a gallery effect or you want to make a big impact in your space. If you can’t afford oversized artwork then just paint directly on the wall. Of course you’ll want to be aware of the texture you add to the wall. It might seem like a great idea to go all Jackson Pollock and spatter dramatic paint all over the place but think about what will happen if you change your design aesthetic. You may decide later on to go in a different direction, or you want to sell your house. Even if you get rid of the color of the spatters the texture will still be there creating imperfections in your space. You can always paint on canvas or fabric and apply it to your wall for a custom look.

Which interior wall color you choose says a lot about you. If you’re going for a neutral color you can still make it interesting by adding a tonal effect. For a modern room you might want to paint tone on tone circles on one wall. This will work especially well for a contemporary nursery, play room, or game space. Even if you are just painting your walls white, go for an extremely bright white so your choice looks intentional. If you want a shabby chic or cottage look then pay attention to the trim, woodwork and ceiling in your room with ivory or taupe trim for an aged appearance that has a sense of history. This will make even the most boring color have a daring attitude and then it will work with a modern design aesthetic.
