Un­ex­pected paint treat­ment

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - FRONT PAGE -

You can paint your walls in the usual man­ner but look at what a dif­fer­ence us­ing a unique tech­nique can make. The two soft wall colours com­bine to make a strik­ing pal­ette. Cap­ping off the room with soft grey gives this room im­me­di­ate charm. The sim­ple choice to use two colours in­stead of just one can make all the dif­fer­ence in the world when it comes to giv­ing a room per­son­al­ity. Paint­ing the ceil­ing is a great way to change the dy­nam­ics of a space. If this room was painted only in the yel­low with a white ceil­ing, for ex­am­ple, it wouldn’t have the same allure. It would be a nice, for­get­table space. Adding the chair rail and other trim, which sep­a­rates the paint colours, adds ar­chi­tec­tural in­ter­est and a sense of lux­ury. It doesn’t take a lot of money or time to in­clude th­ese small touches. Trim on other el­e­ments, like cab­i­net doors, can also be used to en­hance a room or plain fur­ni­ture. The din­ing chairs are scrump­tious and def­i­nitely add lots of style to this space. Don’t despair if you haven’t got the bud­get for costly din­ing chairs. Use your imag­i­na­tion to up­date what you have just like I did when I painted my din­ing chairs with turquoise chalk paint. You may be able to re­cover fab­ric seats, paint your chairs or pur­chase af­ford­able chair cov­ers to get the look you want. Chairs don’t have to match ei­ther. Keep your eye open for deals on stylish chairs at thrift shops and so on. You may be able to cre­ate an en­sem­ble that works for you. I sim­ply love the bright pur­ple ac­cent colour in this room. It’s re­ally un­ex­pected, youth­ful and chic. This is where your per­son­al­ity can be brought into your dé­cor. Maybe you’re more of a
