The Latest Paint Trends
The latest trend when it comes to interior design is to have a feature wall. This wall is covered in an eye-catching heavily patterned wallpaper in one of this season’s hottest colour combinations of either bright blue and mushroom brown or orange and misty grey. The trend is for the other walls to be painted in a flat, matte colour in just one of the shades featured in the wallpaper. Earth Friendly’s wide range of shades is ideal for achieving this look. Their bright blue toned Sky Blue shade is the perfect shade for this summer’s hottest look and works really well with the both the brown colour scheme of the season and with bright fuchsia pink and even lemon yellow which are also popular for 2013. Alternatively if you’re following the grey and orange theme, the Earth Friendly heritage ivory designer paint shade is ideal for brightening up a room and looks particularly good when teamed with eye-catching floral wallpaper.
For those who don’t particularly like heavily patterned wallpapers, a feature wall can be created by teaming an intensive shade of paint such as Earth Friendly Chilli Red Emulsion with a more subtle shade such as Velvet Cream or Magnolia. There are also some great other shades available to create the perfect feature wall look in any room of your home.
