Feature walls always look best when the wall you’re going to paper or paint – is an architectural feature in it’s own right (as pictured in this living room). Just doesn’t look as good as if say, you have three plain white walls and then, bang, one blue wall – look for natural nooks and crannies – or create an architectural feature as in the second photo, in this bedroom the homeowner has added VJ cladding and shallow timber shelves – simple and gorgeous!
If you’d like a wallpapered feature wall – paint the remaining walls in the background colour of the paper – this way it’ll flow rather than being disjointed. Feature walls can be gorgeous, they just need to make sense. Tx
