Level of difficulty : Leisurely inspiration

  • Wall paint of a colour of your choice
  • White wall paint
  • A paint brush and a paint roller
  • Masking tape
  • Cover sheets or drop cloth

Our tip: Consider the colours of other striking objects in the room when selecting your new paint colours, so you don’t tip the room’s colour harmony out of balance.

 

How we do it:

01

After covering the floor and your furniture with a protective sheet, apply the masking tape horizontally to your wall.

Tip: Use a water bubble and first draw the stripe with a pencil.

02

Paint the first area with the coloured wall paint. Afterwards, remove the masking tape and let the paint dry.

03

Apply a new strip of masking tape adjacent to the coloured edge of the first area. Put the next strip of masking tape on the wall in such a way that the second area will be as high as the first.

04

Mix the white paint with the colour wall paint to achieve a brighter shade. Paint the second area with the coloured wall paint. Afterwards, remove the masking tape and let the paint dry again.

05

Depending on how many colour shades you want to have, repeat points three to six that often.

The colour combination in the video clip is just a suggestion. We recommend that you pay attention to striking objects in the room when selecting the coloured wall paint. In our example, these are e.g. the couch pillow and the fruit bowl. That way you create a harmonious atmosphere you can feel good in.
