With this styling secret, if you buy paint for your walls, you would apply it to your trim and some furniture pieces as well. It creates a cohesive design that is stylish and bold.
Painting You Archway
Your archways or entryways in your home also have an opportunity to be expressive. If there are exposed beams of wood with character, you probably should not paint over them; however, drywall beams are great for adding a splash of color. You can be creative and add an accent color on the inside of the archway or entryway beams to spruce up the room. Colors can make a strong statement, so finding powerful places to apply them is critical.
Your home can be more than just visual aesthetic. Textures can powerfully enhance your room’s entire atmosphere. Try putting soft textures where you want to the area to be cozy and hard, sleek textures as creative focal points. Do not be afraid to add different elements like woods, silks, stones, leathers, and rugs into your home. Textures will help make your space a more hands-on experience.
