Living Room

Colour Blocking

It’s a modern way of introducing contrasting deep tones or bright pops of colour to portray luxury. You can add artwork in the room and then paint blocks of colour around it. More so, you can create a focal point around your fireplace and archway in your house by colour blocking them. Another way is to use less aggressive colours to make a point of interest. Some of the best colour blocking is done by colours ranging from grey to red. 

Mural Paint

Painting a mural allows you to replicate your idea on the wall. You can do it yourself or ask an artist to do the job. You have endless possibilities that you can use to reflect your personality. However, ensure that the mural is blending with the futures and other spaces in the room. Otherwise, this painting will attract attention for the wrong reasons. 

Bright Colors

Bright colours create a happy tone because they brighten, create a playful vibe, and brighten a dull space. Thus, you don’t have to settle for neutral that seems less offensive. Therefore, go for bold tones and then use contrasting colours for its flooring and furniture. For instance, blue gives your room a serene and calming vibe when coupled with a white ceiling. The two provide the living room with an airier and lighter feel. You can splash it with orange to bring the whole thing together.  

Bold Strikes

You can give your house some bold stripes to create a focal point in the living room. For instance, paint black and white horizontal strips make the wall more full, while vertical stripes will make it longer. 

Breezy Contemporary

Paint your walls white and cabinet blue and then contrast the two with dark-brown ceiling beams to create a relaxing, modern living area. Additionally, you can put a blue rug and sofa cushions with patterns.


You desire to have a lovely kitchen. However, such a kitchen doesn’t have to be always white. You can pick an exotic neutral.

Dark Navy

Paint the walls and the cabinets blue to give your kitchen a warm and casual feel. The choice of dark paints makes the atmosphere cozy and intimate. The navy colour will always change from totally blue to black as the light varies during the day.   


You can give your kitchen a vacation look by painting it coral pink. Introducing a rattan and bamboo staples makes it unique.


A creamer shade is a better option for white and still keep the kitchen bright and light. The warmer undertones of the cream paint make it inviting.


Having the right bedroom is the first thing you should consider when painting your house. The room should melt away your stress as you get ready to sleep.

Break the peachy blush walls with black and white artwork to give it a contrasting look. More so, the blush pink will work well with bright red and blue-grey tones.
