Last year we were redecorating the living room and really struggling with what to do regarding colors. I was trying to take inspiration from just about everywhere, and following social media pages and buying magazines to see what ideas I could find. It was the social media page of interior designer Robert Testagrossa which really gave me the solution to my problems, when he wrote a post about the many benefits of a feature wall.
This was eventually what we did in the living room and I have to say that it turned out to be one of the best decisions which I have ever made. Here are the benefits which you can count on with a feature wall in the home.
Increase Color Patterns
Initially I was looking for a color which would look great all over the living room, and this was part of the reason why I found it so difficult to decide on which was the right option. What you get when you are able to bring in a feature wall however is the chance to get a second color in there, which then gives your room a far deeper and richer feeling. Not only this, but when it comes to choosing furniture and details for the room, you have a far greater range of choice regarding the colors which you can bring into the space.
Our living room is not particularly big, and I never really thought there was much that I could do about that. What I quickly learned regarding the feature wall however, was that you can play with lighter and darker colors to give the appearance of a larger space. Once we had finished the paintwork there was a real difference in terms of the way that the mind considers the space, and that was something which absolutely confirmed that we had made the right choice. If you have issues with a small room, this kind of option could be something which drastically changes how the space feels.
More Creative Space
There is no doubt that with the feature wall the room just feels far more thought out and has much more creativity in it than we would have done if we just stuck to a single color. This was something which I actually wanted to add to the room but didn’t really have any ideas how to go about it. The feature wall is really a creative touch which shows that you have properly thought out the way in which the room is going to look, and there is no doubt that it looks much more stylish as a result.
If you are looking to really add some style and charm to your room, a feature wall is the perfect way to do it. The best part about a design feature like this, is that it is very easy to achieve and has a profound impact on the entire theme of the room.
